I am mainly frustrated at the fact I am missing training time not really at the LBS or the mechanic.
You are right, the reason it is taking longer than 1 day is in fact because we ordered the wrong bottom bracket which is actually not their fault but Specialized since they told me my serial number had a BB30 instead of BSA bracket. If I knew anything about BB, I should have spotted this one.
My intent on the post was to get ideas on what to do to get a good workout without a bike and not lose fitness, or in my case more importantly the drive to continue working out…
To the other guys recommending that I do my own maintenance, I must say, I also agree., and I do. That said, a pressure fit BB is not straight forward if you dont know what you are doing (which I don’t, as you can see I ordered Specialized recommended bottom bracket and I thought it would be fine). This is the reason why I opted to go the LBS route for this installation. I also value my LBS mechanics a lot - they are great group of guys!
As always, I appreciate this forum and everyone’s contribution!
