You were doing fine until the last bit about tightening and loosening bbs. Right hand side is tightened anticlockwise - left clockwise; as illustrated by the pic directly above.
6/10 :lol:


I stand corrected on which way the BB cups are tightened, in the UK on modern bikes.

Here is the CORRECTED version (I've also edited the original topic to be correct).

ALSO IN A TOPIC ABOUT BOTTOM BRACKETS, this is worth mentioning when fitting/removing BB's:
~ DRIVE SIDE (R/H): TIGHTEN & LOOSEN OPPOSITE of NORMAL (i.e: Tighten = Anti-Clockwise or Slacken = Clockwise)
~ NONE DRIVE SIDE (L/H): TIGHTEN & LOOSEN AS NORMAL (i.e: Tighten = Clockwise or Slacken = Anti-Clockwise)

For more detailed instructions from EHOW see HERE.

HOW TO FIT PEDAL (NOTE: L/H PEDAL REVERSE THREAD & R/H PEDAL NORMAL THREAD)

It's ok though because whilst he is posting all of this, at least he isn't out doing some damage in the community. I do wonder if he'll show up in a documentary about serial killers some day, and how everyone ignored the warning signs...! :shock:
