    my only guess would be getting rid of a kickstand plate.

    or just taking out a little anger.

    oh! or getting rid of those ugly hook shaped cable guides that some 80s frames have on the top of the BB shell.

    My guess is also the cable guide. Old school frames had the long curvy guide on top of the BB shell to send the cabe back to the driveside chainstay to the rear der.

    YIKES! dude I use a dremel-tool with a carbon cutting disc for that kind of stuff....I'd never trust my fumbling hands with large grinder on a bicycle frame....

    oh and my guess is your cutting into the face plate of the BB? (as stated before)...?
    Possibly because you ruined it by using some other over-kill tool to adjust/remove/install said BB in question?








    (I've did something similar once....)

    It seems that you are cutting into the BB-shell.

    I suppose that you are attempting to shorten your bottom-bracket shell slightly for the purpose of getting a better chainline?

    From the angle of the grinder, the position of your knee and the length of your hair, I'm guessing you have no clue either and prior to this picture, you and some friends had been drinking in the presence of someone's bike and a big ol' grinder.

    Can I take my 15 points over 15 days or do I have to take a lump sum of 15 minutes?
