I am building a new bike using a Wabi Classic frame, and plan on using SRAM Omnium crankset and bottom bracket. I emailed Richard at Wabi and he said there is no need to face/chase the BB, it's ready to build. I also called a LBS and asked them how much they charge to face/chase a frame. They told me that they haven't had to do that to a NEW frame in over 10 years, and it's normal to install BB with paint on the face. Below is a few images of the BB. Do I need to have this faced/chase to use the external GXP bb from the SRAM? Or should I try to install anyway.
I've read differing opinions on the forums, so what are peoples opinions now? Is my LBS full of it, lazy?
Also real quick, i'm putting a new build together and will have a lot of questions. Would it be better to do a build log and if so where should that be located?
