    It's either possible or it isn't. A dial caliper doesn't lie.

    I would not be so concerned that the BB shell usually does not lead to the same kind of catastrophic failures that a headtube can cause.
    I resolve to constantly assert my honest opinion on anything and everything - whether it is requested or not.
