Bottom Bracket Overhaul

Woohoo! I did it! Took a couple of hours for the first time, but next time, probably less than 1/2 hour. Had to keep referring to Park Tools website and my book. They spin great. Took awhile to get the hang of the adjusting.

Next, overhaul hubs.

Congrats. Very worthwhile skill to have mastered.

Hubs are greased and packed! Hardest part was getting the hubs just right so they didn't wobble. Not too tight or loose. Took forever. I think I finally got the hang of it. New chain and lube then I rode it about 10 miles and it was pretty smooth. (nothing fell off or broke down)

Good work! Do check the adjustment again on hubs and bb after you've ridden a few times. Sometimes they loosen just a tad after wearing in.
