Stupid bike.

I was planning on regreasing my bottom bracket, but I couldn't remove the cup. So I brought it to the store, but while the store guy managed to loosen and remove it, either the bearing cages got bent while it was getting extracted, or they were already bent (unlikely - I had been riding this bike daily).

Ended up getting a sealed bottom bracket installed. Cost me $25 for the bottom bracket and $20 for the service charge (normally $30).

Grr. I've now spent more on the stupid bike than it originally cost me. GRRRR....

I should have asked for the parts back and just shoved them back in, with extra bearings and without the bearing cages - that's apparently an option, according to the internet.
