Help! Took it apart, now I need to put it back together
My MTB was a mess of dirt and gunk. Got a set of bike tools for Christmas, so I decided to learn how to use them by taking apart my MTB and cleaning it.
All has gone well, except that when I took the cassette off, I forgot to notice where the two washers went.
One is a large smooth ring that I'm pretty sure goes between the second and third cog, if some faint marks on it are any indication. The other has teeth. Does it go on the inside, close to the spokes?
Also, I took apart my crankset with an allen head. Was that bad? Didn't lose any bolts, and I think I remember how it goes back together.
Tools+History degree = Trouble
