    It make sense, thank you. Yes I know, if I put something in wrong order I always can take it apart, but here is my revised plan:

    1. Run cable housings (internal cables)

    All instructions I was able to find on Youtube are about assembling bikes that come (for example from BD) partially assembled. This is not what I have. That is why I am trying to lay down the plan...

    Good point about cable housings. They run inside the frame, not through the BB, but through the headtube. You are right they probably should be run as #1 , before the greasy headset installed. I...

    I am spending my money on Retul already. I have no idea why. I (and most of the cyclist) always was able to do it myself.
    So, I am not cheap :)

    My old ones are good for everyday ride, but I have them already for 3-4 years and do not look nice. Besides, I am...

    I just got new bearings. I stopped in at another LBS, and ask the tech to see if he has ones. He said NO, but I asked him re-measure the old ones. As he was playing with his rulers, I...

    As they rust the brown stain goes down to the white fork, and it does not look good. Also the one of them does not spin easily. Maybe they are not worn, but I think have the new ones will not hurt. ...

    Thanks, I took it to the shop, they told me the bearings are 45/45 41mm. The shop also says they are "campy spec" but I cannot find it on FSA website.
