My heavyweight weenie sits in the hall looking OKish. When I pick it up it feels no bad but then its still not got bottom bracket, cranks, brakes, chain, cables.......oh dear :oops:

Must get some bathroom scales just to find out quite how lardy it is or isnt :lol:

I'm hoping for near to 25 lbs......some hope :roll:

I'm with this, matches the tubing badge.

My bottom bracket remains in situ, biggest spanner in the house is around 2mm too small to fit the removal tool. I do however have a an 18" Bahco shifter in my tools at work. I reckon that should be big enough.

What tool are you using? Mines has a square 3/8 drive in the middle of
it as well as the BIG nut on the outside. A Park Tool BBT-22 :?
