My name is David, i'm from Chile (southamerica). I got a mechanical question.
I bought a Trek 7.2FX three months ago, having been riding about 600km (mostly commuting), I began to listen a noise from the crankset. The first thing I made was pay attention to all another posibility causes. I mean: pedals, Front derailleur, chain, tightens, etc. I didn't found anything. Then I disassembled the crankset and took off the bottom bracket. The noise source was indeed the BB.
First question: It's possible that a new BB (3 month) fail as soon? Is it associated to the washing procedure?
When I took off the bottom bracket I saw that the cable guide was touching the BB. Is it normal?
By the way, sorry about my poor english, I hope you can understand
