    Your **** out of luck then.
    Just rotofix it and just wrap a bandana around the BB shell to prevent scratching.

    There is definitely enough room in your apartment to wrap a bandana, towel, old t-shirt, etc. around your bb and rotofix that cog off.

    You wont man...just be gentle with her and use a lot of protection.

    Out of curiosity, about what kind of frame are we talking?

    maybe you should go to your lbs and get a whip, i mean you're putting alot of time into this when you could have gotten a whip from your lbs already :s

    I let hyperRevue do it to my virgin frame and it didn't hurt (it) a bit. Don't be afraid to use a little muscle. Or buy a chain whip, OR take it to a shop.

    you don't have to buy anything, you won't scratch your frame, and you'll learn something new.
    you'll improve yourself!
