theres a tool made for pressing the back when tightening the bolts, but you can manage with just a hex.

So from what I researched I shouldn't even need to take off my cranks right? Also my 130 BCD question still stands but I think I need reassurance.

My blue kilo is out for delivery....I'll have a nice, big cardboard box waiting for me when I get home from the daily grind.

That color is looking good...I'm relieved the decals are white.

Quint just to tell you that at least for mine and many others the UPS delivery is strict signature only as it is a big item. So you might have to go pick it up...Unless you have someone else at home to sign it for you of course...Stupid UPS isn't here when it usually is for my delivery...I just hope they come while I'm still home...

Don't listen to this post. You absolutely need something to hold the back of the bolt still while you torque the hex side. Even if you don't want to buy the parktool for it, use a wide flat head. But it's really important that your chainring be solid, so do something to secure the back of the bolts when you tighten

As long as the back side of those bolts doesn't spin then it's good. Usually you need to secure it with something, though.

So anyone have any tips on removing the lockring + cog? I'm having a hell of a time since I've gotten my bike to get it off...

You really need to move somewhere with better graffiti.

The "quality" of graffiti is at the absolute TOP of my list of criteria in finding a destination when I move, I cant wait - then my life and, more importantly, the pictures I take of my bike will be complete!

So updates:
Finally finished putting together and readjusting my bike to death!
Definitely glad I got the 47 instead of the 50 because even the 47 doesn't even seem to fit me well.
And one picture for now but more later.
Adjusted my bullhorns level don't worry.
Finally how in the world do I adjust my seat so it points level or even downwards?

from that picture, it looks like your seatpost is backwards in the seat tube. if the stock post doesn't allow for tilt adjustment, you may have to get a different post that does (even some inexpensive Kalloys have tilt adjustment). Are you legs almost fully extended with that setup? It does look a little bit unfortunate that you have the seat slammed down, but hopefully it'll work out for you.

yeah, it's backwards. the stock seatpost does allow for seat adjustment. loosen the bolt (the same one that you used to get the saddle on) and move it around to your liking.
