Hi all, I bought a bike online for a project and learning experience and it's a complete bag of rubbish. Example, despite having a 9 speed cassette and Deore rear mech, it has a set of SRAM 3x 5 grip shifters. It is a Frankensteiner, but I'm going to plod away at it anyway. I'm currently struggling with the bottom bracket. It's a square tapered threaded one. I went to the non-drive side first. The tool barely fits in the splines, like it's filled with mud or something, but it does turn. In fact, it turns both ways to little or no effect. I've turned it for ages, it just spins but nothing happens. I've watched the drive side whilst turning it and nothing is moving that side. But the drive side is absolutely solid and I can't seem to get a good grip on it (yet - I'll try the bolt and washer trick when I can get to B&Q) So the non drive side - is it buggered? If I get a replacement BB, will I still be okay with a new threaded one? Thanks.
