Good luck MrDelPrete. Hope it all rides great in the end. BTW, the BB was never that bad. Once I had the right tools in hand, it was easy. The headsets were/still are a pain for me, at least the old threaded ones are. Hopefully, you're installing a threadless unit. But I still have days when I need to take a deep breath. If it ain't a manufacturer who gets the amount of threading off, or a frame maker who didn't machine and square off the faces on the head tube, or some guy spec'ing the cheapest of headsets, or someone who's crashed his frame and had some shop try to re-align the head tube but ovalized it in the process... etc. Well, life gets interesting and I find myself mumbling profanity at the ghosts of previous wrenches that have touched the bike. But then, a bike build without that cursing wouldn't be as satisfying...maybe. LOL!
