    Tektro is crap.

    The best road mechanical disc brakes are still avid BB7's.

    Make sure you use disc brake housing - this will stop the ****ty spongy feel. Beyond that better brake pads/rotors....

    They should.

    You need to look at the missing link. It could be too wide for that chain (I haven't tested this combo myself so I can't say for sure)

    If the link looks wider than any of the links on the chain,...

    Wrong tool.

    The adapter requires two, external bottom bracket tools, one on each side for the praxis bb30 -> 24mm adapter. This is the one you need/want.

    That is a very dumb fix.

    If the noise is from a loose shell tolerance, then either the frame must be warrantied. Assume that it's not an undersized bearing. And also assuming that gap filling...

    1) If that's a 68mm bb, there shouldn't be 2 x spacers on the left side for a gxp bb regardless of what the manual says

    Eggbeaters require maintenance, much more than a shimano pedal. And failure to maintain causes failures like pedal body flying off the spindles when riding. Not a good failure mode. AKA they suck.
