    My Bike Parts Are Coming!!! My Bike Parts Are Coming!!!

    So i've recieved half my parts i ordered, Wednesday I got my Race Face Evolve DH crank and ISIS bottom bracket, and I also got my FSA pro DH chainring, even though they sent me a 5 bolt and i ordered a 4 bolt the package was stickered wrong. So the right one is on the way, and the 5 bolt is on it's way back to San Diego.
    So I'm still waiting on the right chain ring, and my e-thirteen SRS is supposed to arrive today.

    TOMORROW = INSTALL DAY HOORAY!!!

    i'll have pictures of the parts after I install the stuff.

    Ok, my parts are installed, and I'm ready to go.

    What an experience, FIRST i needed a 20 tooth BB tool and no one had any for sale, and all the shops around me said it'd be two days to swap out my BB. So i called the LBS where i bought my bike, about 20 miles from my house, but excellent, in the end i'm going to repeatedly choose them. So i finally called them and the guy on the phone looked to see if they had any for sale, NONE, so then he was like well you can come up here and use it if you like. SO, i drove there and he got me right in, took me to the back let my put my bike up on there work stand and do my thing and he ended up helping me too. SO My stock BB was a ***** and a half. The Drive side cup probably didn;t get greased when whoever put my bike together put it together. So in the process of trying to break it loose two of the shops ratchets broke and it was all together a pain in the butt, I bought them a new ratchet cause i felt bad about them bashing their tools, and they didn't charge me which was super cool, and they reluctantly accepted the ratchet. After that incident everythign went fine.

    Although, the spider on the crank arm rubs on the mounting plate which isn't too big of a problem. I had to use washers as described in the instruction book to get the chain alignment right. I rode a fast lap around the neighborhood and i love it so much, doing a few drops and some other stuff, chain loss and suck are completely eliminated and i'm loving it.

    new parts rock alot!
