busted my ride
Title says it all. On my ride home from work today, i sheared my BB spindle off at were the square taper meets the bushing. Talk about depressing.
My bike is an older Panasonic sport deluxe that I have been working on for 6 months. My question is, where do I go from here? Is it possible to find a new spindle? How hard would it be (money wise and labor wise) to get a whole new bottom bracket, cups and all? I also live right outside philly ... should I be giving VIA a call?
cheers, I need all the help I can get now, i need to get my bike up and working before work again on saturday afternoon on a limited budget, so thanks much in advance.
