Thanks for the comments sherlylock, I have seeen your work on here and am very impressed with your attention to detail, I almost feel guilty using incorrect components for this build
I got a crank puller from a friend, and have removed the crank. One of the ring bolts is stuck so now have a new problem to get over..
Also got another issue, something isn't right with the headset, when tightened it pretty much locks up. The only thing I can see is that there is only one split ring, one the lower bearings, and nothing for the top. Should there be the same split ring for the top bearings? Also, should I have a washer between the two top nuts? Sorry, I have forgottten their proper name!
I will hopefully have some more parts for this next week, I am mad keen to get it on the road!
I also need a chain whip to try and remove the cassette, it 's not budging!
