Recently-purchased used Argon 18 Platinum
I want to remove the crank/bottom-bracket I have (Shimano 7700 53-39Teeth) and replace it with an FSA compact crank I have.
I don't know much about different bottom brackets. There are so amny types/widths. I don't even know what type of BB my FSA crank uses (bought it at bike-club swap-meet).
- Can I even use the FSA crank in this frame?
- If so, what BB should I buy?
- What BB hardware will I need (or does it come with the BB)?
- What tool(s) should I buy (or should I have this done at a LBS?)
I have nothing against going to a LBS, I just like to work on my own stuff.
What I have:
It look like the overall length of the BB I have is 110mm, and about 17.5 mm protrudes out of the drive-side.
I have NO idea how you can get a crank to look this bad.
If you look closely in the pics, you can see that the previous owner of this bike must have used pliers on this bottom-bracket
What I want to install:
