    Need some Homegrown identification help

    I'm a bit emberassed to admit that I need some help ID'ing the different parts on this torque value chart. I put a letter next to each line, could someone help by pointing to where these go on the following diagrams?
    Using a simple program like paint should work, just draw a line to where each letter goes.
    Thanks

    First things first with regards to the Banger. That chart only fully applies to pre-2000 model ones with pinch bolts, both HG and regular. The 2000 frame had no, zero, none, pinch bolts.

    All the 100-110 in-lb torques on the Banger are for pinch bolts. There are two at the chainstay pivot, two at the seat stay pivot, and two actually on the chainstay arm that hold the big bearings into it. The 45-55 in-lb values are for the "side bolts" that hold the pivot pins in the large bearings. So:

    E refers to the bolts that pinch the chainstay large bearings
    F refers to the pinch bolts that hold the chainstay pivot tube in place at the BB
    G are the "side bolts" in both sets of large bearings
    H refers to the pinch bolts that hold the seatstay pivot tube in place at the big pivot in the carbon upper arm.

    In this picture are E, F, and one set of G. E are not really visible on top of the pivot, G are on the side, and F are staring right at you:


    In this picture are H and the other set of G. G are on the side, and H is pointed at you:


    2000 model Banger frames had none of these, other than the 45-55 in-lb side bolts.

    Sometimes it's cool to have a spare frame laying around. Shwinn, I believe the pics I have of your S8 show that it's made pretty much the same way, other than chainstay pinch bolts.

    Blue, don't feel bad. When I first took apart my red Banger (a 2000 model), I thought, "WTF are all these bolts they're talking about?" It only made sense once I got the HG, and even then I had to take some time to figure out what each description meant. Seeing how these bikes are made, it's no wonder the frames are a bit heavy and they cost so much. Talk about labor-intensive, and requiring a skilled specialist to make them. Certainly not automation-friendly.

    This is what I've got so far.
    The Sweet Spot is pretty easy, only a couple items on it.

    The Straight 8 and 4 Banger is what I was a little lost on. The pivot pins, and clamp bolts are what had me confused. Look correct now?

    I can probably figure out the Straight 8 based on the 4 Banger id's.



    Thanks for your help guys, I knew you would know!

    Did you put any lube on the pins, or any other parts when you put it back together?

    Nope. My theory was that they need to stay put, so I didn't put any anti-sieze or anything like that on them. I just cleaned everything up very well before assembly.
