Bottom Bracket Bearings 2 bikes Kaput Now
peeps, my bearings for my on-one cranks are already messed up. No matter what I do, my on-one 3 piece cranks freeze up when I tighten them. I'm about ready to throw in the towel with these things. Anyhow, do you guys know where I might find a 61804-2rs bearing, or 4 of them? I called some bearing supply co's locally and the phuckin things are $42.00 a piece. For that price, I might as well order a set of profiles. Anyhow I'm about ready to give up on getting these phucking things to work. The problem was my chainline with my evil guide. The chain kept skipping down a gear when backpedalling cause of the ridiculous chainline so I decided to take off the chainguide and just run the bash ring. I wanted to move in the chainline a little by taking off the boomerang, but just like before when I install the cranks they freeze up when I tighten the arms. Is there a shop in Massachusetts that can handle fixing these cranks? I don't think the shops in my area have ever seen 3 piece cranks. I'm about ready to throw in the towel. I'd order a new set of profiles like everyone recommended in the first place, but I already got these so I might as well get them fixed. They are a nice crank, it's the BB and chainline that is my problem. Besides if I ordered a set of profiles, I'd phuck them up too.
