Well, I thought it was my pedals. I just switched them out only to find that it is actually my BB that is borked.
So now I'm pissed, as my entire weekend is effectively ruined. And I'm more pissed because I just got this installed a month ago. And yes, it is that bad. That thing is creaking like crazy.
What I wonder is what should I expect of my LBS? Now I'm going to have to take my bike back there on Monday and go through the whole rigmarole of hoping they'll get it right this time, and miss out on yet more days of riding in this my last month here in Holland ()
I had a bunch of work done a month ago, I was already miffed that I had to take it back once after the first time because they didn't do all the work.
When I took it in the first time I asked about the BBs, the guy said "we only have one". Is it normal for a high-end LBS to not even bother stocking more than one type of BB? My attitude is that if they're only going to sell one, it should be something that won't fall apart on me in a month.
They apparently had a hell of a time getting the last BB out because it was such a mess. I paid a fair whack for the work the first time.
What I'm expecting now is that they'll replace the BB and charge me again, for the parts and the labour.
Is that fair? I'm currently fuming at the beautiful weather I don't get to enjoy on my ride. I was really looking forward to this weekend . And now this is the second time I go back there.
If what they did and what they provided was right, then how can it be normal for me to wreck it in one month?
