    Ah, now you need to get your bottom bracket shell faced for the bottom bracket to sit flesh with the bottom bracket shell.
    Wow, it looks quite good for only 20 bones.

    I am also aware that you are missing a headset...you might want to get a headset.

    Looks good!
    I did the same for about 20 bucks but in red.
    Had it for 3-4 months. Still chips real easy though :/
    I think I'm going to get it powdercoated soon so I can have that shine that spraycans lack

    Oh, you have them.
    Then you should get your head tube and bottom bracket shell faced.


    Thank you Sheldon
    The process of finishing the flat surfaces of theframe and fork to which bearing assemblies attach. Correct facing of the head tube, fork crown and bottom bracket shell ensures correct alignment of the headset and bottom bracket bearings. This is necessary to ensure good bearing performance and reliability. Facing requires highly specialized milling equipment, among the most expensive of bicycle tools. Even minimal tools to do this job cost several hundred dollars.

    Well it doesn't have time for the oils to escape if you put the clearcoat on that quick. Plus, you need to sand it between coats anyways.

    Conversely, the reason my Leader is still bare aluminum is because I know I don't have the patience to try to spraypaint it properly. I even had access to automotive sprayers last year, and I didn't want to deal with it.

    Facing requires expensive, precision tools, take it to the shop, not sure how much they will charge though.
    Yes, you need to keep that yellow plastic part to install the bottom bracket.
    You might as well take your frame+fork, that paper bag of headset, bottom bracket and cranks to the Bike Kitchen and get everything installed in one day, then you are almost ready to ride!

    You should own those tools as they are very essential for fixed gear riding.
    Other than that, you're all set once you put all your original parts back onto the bike.
    Which cog + lockring did you get?
