Sooo, the Sette' Reken is on order, as is a 21 piece Sette toolkit that has a tool for almost anything you'd want to tweak on a bike. I have great mechanical knowledge (i work on pianos with 2000+ moving parts) and I know how to maintain a decent number of things on my own bikewise. My question is this, some say when you get a new frame you have to do all this milling on the BB, the head tube and the rear hanger etc. Usually this is mentioned in reference to high dollar setups. Will I have to pay my LBS lots of money to prep my $79.00 (on sale) frame? Or can I prep it myself using wire brushes etc? Do I really need to Face and Chase a 79.00 frame?
