FSA platinum pro track BB
FSA says that their platinum pro track bb is adjustable for chainline, anyone actually know how to adjust it to get rid of my sorry-ass chainline?
Anybody else run this BB?
bsaed on the looks from this picture, it seems that you basically just thread it in so that the drive side is in as far as you need it for the chainline to be proper and then screw down the non-drive cup. in order to get a really tight fit, it will probably help to have two wrenches with the splined bottom bracket tool so that you can tighten them against each other.. the thread locker that comes on the cups should help, too.
Thanks shants, you're then man.
The reason I asked was because I went into my LBS asked them about it, and they looked the bottom bracket up in a catalog and said that there was a flange on the driveside portion of the threadings so that you couldn't adjust it that way. I checked my bike and it doesn't have that flange, just like the one in the picture you found. So I guess FSA changed their track bb in the past year or two.
Thanks for the help again.
looks quite similar to the Miche one... (i know miches are square tappers)... well so be sure to put enough teflon in the threads OK? How u dont have a lock ring on those things u need something to keep it in place.
lots of bb's don't use lockrings...phil, for one...just install it right w/ some blue loctite and don't worry about it!
