Cup and Cone - Cartridge Conversion

This is a continuation of my Trek 400 upgrade. After installing the new Sugino cranks, I noticed the chain line is off and had to adjust the front derailer to get it to shift. Needless to say I have other issues and need to install a 110mm cartridge which matches the RD2 specs. So other than the tools require to remove the old and install the new. The only other part I have on my list is new crank bolts. The old cranks used a nut. Am I missing anything?

Installing the new one is a piece of cake. If there's a part to this project that's a challenge it will be getting the old one off. That sometimes requires the use of words that aren't allowed to be spoken on US warships.

...And remember, that fixed cup on the drive side is reverse threaded.

Disappointed with My LBS

Went to my LBS pick up the new BB and bolts. However they had no wenches. Check with other LBS no luck. Call back to the my LBS and asked if i can run the bike over and pay to have some one loosen the BB. Their response was we're busy come back next week. This is the place were I drop $1000+ each year. So I went to the other Specialized LBS and they loosen the BB for $5.00. That 5 bucks just got them another couple grand in business. The drive is twice as far though.

Amazon has all the tools, and most are cheap (Park, Pedro's, Icetoolz, Shimano, Campagnolo, Ciclo Rivoli, etc.). Just don't put them in your wish list, that seems to raise the price by a few cents per day.
