Hope this is the right place to post this.
I just won a Dawes Galaxy (Reynolds 531)off eBay. It seems like a good investment & worthy of restoring. Plan is to strip the frame & re paint, then rebuild.
The stem & seatpost move OK (I took the stem out,It has a round wedge type of thing that pulls into the frame when the allen bolt is done up.)
Before I take the frame to bits, what tools will I need to remove the Bottom Bracket? & will a shimano cartridge BB fit as long a s the length is right. I'm assuming the width is 68mm, but I'll check later.
Sorry about the rubbish photo, as it was the one on eBay... I'll take some more later & post them
Many thanks & looking forward to your replies
