Agreed with this, even 4 years ago it was easy.wallstbear wrote:I hope this won't offend anyone, but to be a mechanic today you have to be so much smarter than before. I started building my own bikes back in the 90s (square tapered BBs etc.) and have built easily 50+ bikes myself with great results. But with the latest technologies I honestly feel a bit less capable myself and have resorted to shops on several occassions. The results were pretty similar to the OP's. The shop guy *f##k* things up frequently.
