I just bought a 06 Tusanny, do i need to face the headtube and BB? is that done by the factory already? most LBS don't like to work on Ti frame.
I just got my '06 Tuscany frame last week. I am building the bike up this weekend, and should have it ready by Tuesday.

The headtube is ready for the headset, just go ahead and pop it in. I have a headset tool, but it's just like putting the cups in a aluminum or steel frame. The headset went in like a dream. I was going to use a Chris King, but ended up using the Cane Creek that came with the frameset.

The BB is threaded (english), although I had to chase the threads before I installed the BB. It was snug going in, so I decided to chased the threads, and then it went in a little easier, but it was still slow going, and a quite stiff. I think it's Ti thing. :)

Enjoy the bike, those rear stays sure are magnificant. :)

How did you "chase" the BB threads? With a thread cutter? Which one? Thanks!
