I finished up my bearing service and am reassembling. I noticed when I took it apart that the nut on the large bolt that goes through the BB pivot is recessed to the point it is very hard to get a socket on. I have a 6 point craftsman socket that can only get on the outer edges of nut due to the recess. I hate to even try to torque to the 200 in-lbs without getting the socket fully on the nut. What are you guys using here. Is there a thinner socket that will fit into the area and get fully engaged on the nut. I also noticed how much fun it is going to be to try and get all the spacers in place on the smaller pivots and get the seat/chain stays installed. Any advice would be great.
