Hi all,

With the respray of my Rascal coming up in the near future, I'm looking for some stuff I need when the frame is done :D

I am looking for a cable guide (if it's called that way). You know, that plastic thingie that's attached to the BB and routes the rear/front derailleur cables through...

Anyone have one of those?

BTW: I also found out that my BB spindle is WAY to short, it's a 110mm (approx) and won't fit my FC-M730 crank. So errr, if anyone has one that fits lying about the place (should be about 117 - 119 mm I think??).

BTW: Also I ain't got no CCD for the frame (there wasn't one on, and also no bolts). It should be that black thingie with 3 bolt-holes in a row in it.

Thanx for all tha help,

Void(EN12-82)

Hi,
I have a Klein attitude with a too long BB spindle.
I now ride with MT60 cranks because the beautifull M900
cranks that were on it when I bought it distorted sadly
enough the chainline. :(
So guess what, I am looking for a 110mm spindle
but I am a bit reluctant getting the thing out, because
it is in perfect play-free working order right now.

I will contact Carsten, think he might be a Klein specialist
To ask him whether it is worth the hussle.

Can't help you with the other stuff, the guy who sold you
the frame should still have them?

Well, I asked here how to get the think out... and they told me to go to a dealer.

Went to the dealer last saturday, and they didn't have no extraction tool (only one to press a new spindle or bearings in).

Just went to the tech shop with one of them employees and we got us a hammer and something to hold the frame. It came right out, A LOT easier than everyone here said. We screwed a crank-bolt in the spindle and tapped it right out with a rubber hammer.

After that it was just a matter of evently tapping the bearings out as well. No trouble at all, I could have just done that myself. But better safe than sorry :-)
