What It Be ?
I have a 2005 8500. It has an XT cartridge BB. How tight should this thing be in the frame. I tried taking the left side cup out twisting it counterclockwise like the book I have says. It was plastic and a piece cracked off of it. Its staying in the frame. The right side cartridge is real tight twisitng it clockwise. I'm gonna hit it with some PB blaster and let it sit. I had this bike put togther 1 1/2 ago never had it out. Did a muddy ride today and I am cleaning the bike up for a race next week. Let me know.
