    Are you able to reinstall the old BB? If so then compare the old to the new. Measure the threading diameters and directions. Either the shell needs attention (as JDT says) or you're doing something...

    I guess one could hire a mechanical engineer and come up with the answers you seek. But something tells me that the effort if far more complex then you think it is. Perhaps you could read J Brandt's...

    The "B.9" stamped on the post is most likely a production date code. perhaps the second two week period in 1989, or the second week, or the second month. Andy.

    More info is needed for me to say much but first thing I would do is to remove the rear der casing loop from the chainstay stop (I believe the 4.5 still has external cables, good for this test) and...

    Or the shop also flaked off massive amounts of built up grime from the pulley wheels and now the cleaner surfaces make more noise. Andy.

    +1 above.

    Also it's not uncommon for the point of noticing a problem to be thought of as the start of the problem.

    One way to help diagnosis a freehub problem (with it's bearings making noise)...

    Actually my suggestion of a cable stop device is wrong. The location of the stop is where the levers are mounted, the stops I referred to are to be used with non frame mounted shifter locations....

    From the video it's hard to tell exactly how tight the chain is. But I agree that a tight chain does cause noise and other problems. How to adjust the chain tension is quite straight forward and...

    Bill likely is old enough to remember the Frank Berto articles in Bike World and Bicycling mags that did this type of component documenting. There were caliper/lever model combos that would end up...

    So you're description of the 1-4 Vs the rest shifting issues is exactly what I was saying when the levers and the der don't match. Alternative cable clampings can sometimes help. The best way to...

    +1. It is very common to have to do some "blacksmithy" to lugs and other sockets when building. A change degree or two is usually not too big a deal. Placing thick walled tubes into the lug and...

    It is very likely that the shop found that the shifting in the index mode wasn't to their standards and they reset the lever to friction mode. But to then not say so in the service ticket write up is...

    As WL says, the replaceable hanger isn't fitting fully flat to the frame/drop out's face, the small bolt(s) that hold the hanger onto the frame are cocking the hanger a touch. As the QR is tightened...

    At the shop I work at a hanger alignment includes a der adjustment. Did the shop that did the alignment do an adjustment too?

    Also many ders' mounting bolts are not machined very square with the...

    I just had some of this discussion the other day with a customer. He had been sold on adding sealant to his pricy sew ups. I told him to consider the down side of sealant when one can't open up the...

    The other important spec is how far down the steerer the threading goes. Of course it needs to be enough to house the threared portion of the headset (and cutting more threads can be a tricky and...

    If you ever do a repair for a child or some one's spouse insurance is important. The one arranging the repair might accept the risk but after they're hurt or worse the survivers might feel otherwise....

    Well if you're going to go with aero bars then your racing will be in time trials or triathlon. So if you end up being able to get "fast forward" the screwed up handling won't be an issue to your...

    It's possible that the builder isn't into wondering from what they are set up to do. Perhaps they do batch building. Maybe they have had a bad experience with clamp on binders. Andy.

    But you forget this is why you do things yourself, you want a certain spec.

    A clamp on binder won't hold the post any tighter then a brazed on one will, assuming both are done well. A replaceable...
