Even with new frames I often have to get the BB shell re-tapped for a cartridge to install. Today I finally got around to installing the new ISIS BB into my Nashbar touring frame (nice green, lots of braze-ons).
One side went in without issues. The other tightened down by hand a few turns then seized after a couple turns with the appropiate too. I was unable to back it out. I had to go to Sears and buy a 36mm socket. It then took 30 minutes with the 1/2" socket wrench, standing on the BB shell and whacking it with a rubber mallet to remove the BB. It's removable shell is trashed, the BB shell threads are trashed! I hate life.
On the positive side, the external bearings installed flawlessly on my Ritchey Breakaway frame. I just picked up a chain and 11-32 9 speed cassette. Ritchey OCR road wheels should arrive Tuesday and I'm having a set of Ritchey WCS hubs built with CX width Salsa rims by Jermemy in AZ.
