    Just got my frame back from repair...

    ...and my bottom bracket won't screw in to the frame on either side. It just got back from Turner getting the seat tube replaced and repainted.

    I have removed and replaced the bottom bracket countless times for regular maintenance without the slightest hint of a problem. The threads are clean and look undamaged on the frame and the bottom bracket itself.

    Any suggestions?

    Answer to your probable first question...yes, I am screwing them in the right way.

    Thanks

    having been painted some over spray may have gotten on threads, have it chased then try it.

    Would my expectations be too high if I'm thinking that should have been taken care of before it was sent back to me?

    That's what you get for ordering the Sangria paint

    Just kidding bro. Sorry to hear that happened to you TOO. Same exact thing happened to me last spring. From what I can tell, they face the BB shell after painting but don't bother to run a tap thru the threads. The last thread gets a little crimped and the BB threads won't engage.

    I'm sure you know this but don't force it. You might be able to open that first thread a little with a sharpened spoke. I had to take mine into the shop to get tapped, it immediately threaded perfectly.

    I emailed Greg to tell him about my 30-minute drive each way to the shop and the $15 charge for something Turner should have done. I never heard back. So much for "stellar" customer service.
