actually , modern stuff sucks :evil: :evil:

Tried to fit some Race face cranks ( the one with carbon inserts ) today with a race face BB , Isis I take it is called .

1 the tool I normally use for shimano BB does not work with the race face BB . at beginning it is ok , then it touches the bb so cant screw any further .

2 . the crank bolts are not the same , AND there are different types , M15 , M14 and M12 .

b******s b******s :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil:

so tool for race Face ISIS £9 , crank bolts ( when I figure out which ones I need ) £6 .

Happy days . :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

I have XTR disc brakes on my modern Fisher Cake, and there are little spacer washers available so that you can center the caliper on the rotor.
