Bottom bracket shell backwards....what are my options?
Near the end of my first bamboo frame build and I just discovered I made a complete newb mistake, I installed the BB shell backwards!
I was planning on using a Sug 103mm BB and with it installed backwards the chainring is too close to the CS so not an option. I might be able to use a 110mm. I could always grind the joint down and try to flip it. Left side drive? Backward drive?
Is there any option I'm not thinking of? This sucks, I've put a lot of hours into this frame, I have to make it work....
