    5.7 c build tips

    Does anybody have any tips for headset or bb installs? Like using loctite, grease, anti seize or anything else?

    Anitseize for HS cups, Blue Loctite for BB cups. I like to install the HS cups 1 at a time just to be safe (used to press them both in at once but I've had one get crooked before so I stopped doing that). I also like to route the rear brake hose before I cable it up, makes it easier to get the ty-wrap on the guide without the der. housings in there (esp. by the shock tabs). Everything else is pretty straightforward.

    I used carbon paste on the BB and HS. Pressed one cup in at a time, had good luck with no crooked cups. This was my first time pressing cups and it went well.
