Default Re: Help Planing a build

shouldnt need cone wrenches. no cones to loosen on a cranbrook. I even replaced my bottom bracket without cone wrenches. just have to tighten up the sprocket cone really good with some channel lock pliers. my bottom bracket is over a year old with absolutely no problems whatever. you should consider sealing your gas tank unless you plan on purchasing a plastic tank. cheapest sealer is kreem, about $20 a pint and thats enough to seal two tanks if you follow the directions right. as long as you have sockets, adjustable wrenches, different types of pliers, philips and flathead screwdrivers, and a drill, you pretty much have all you need. loctite is good to have on hand as well. might want to add front brakes as well. the cranbrook has a hole in the front fork you can install brakes on.
