Have run into a frustrating issue though. BB overspray.. I can’t fit the new BB or even the knackered old one. Not happy. Is it too much to ask a proper old school frame builder to either adequately cover the threads prior to painting - or maybe chase them afterwards?
I hope not. That said I had a BB recently that was a bugger to get out & the plastic collar on nds disintegated & left loads of plastic in the threads. I've got a sick note at the moment so my local bike tech chased it out for £20.
