My LBS told me my bottom bracket couldn’t be replaced, and that it’s likely it will degrade completely over this winter.
This is problematic for several reasons.
Most importantly – I bike everywhere. As such, a contingency plan had to be hatched.
That’s how I came to posses a new GT. I’ll post pics later. At any rate, I digress. I
t would seem that my current fenders don’t deflect snow, slush, water, rocks etc. from hitting the bottom bracket. It just builds up. I brush it off after sticky sessions, but apparently it isn’t enough. Here’s evidence.
When Lieberman bites it, I’ll have to do a better job keeping the BB clear on the GT.
