Do you guys face your BB's and head-tubes when building up a bike?

if I was building a new frame, I definitely would do the headset. With a cartridge BB, its less neccessary.. so far, I've only rebuilt existing bikes, and I've not faced the BB and not yet had to replace a headset.

Any more? Not needed.

BB30 (and other assorted new 'standards') and bearings that sit directly in the head tube means is ain't necessary.

Prior to that? Nope.

I'm just finishing a build(first one) and had the head-tubes and BB done. Bare frame, doesn't hurt. The only thing I couldn't have done was the drive side BB shell. It has an ISCG plate and I was told he didn't have the right tool to do it. The facing tool was too wide. He had never seen one though so he may have been mistaken. I went ahead and built it up anyway. Hoping I don't have any issues because my BB is external.

This, unfortunately, is how we kids rolled in the 70's.

Yep, except my Stingray was yellow. It got stolen after only a few months. Thieving scum.

Hard to imagine today riding one of those POS's. But back then, we thought they were cool. Just like bell bottom jeans.

I never had a shifting model, but had a couple stingray's. We went through a phase where we would saw the forks off another bike, and hammer them onto the existing forks, making a chopper. Couldn't keep the front wheel on the ground! The minibikes, and then dirtbikes put the whole bicycle thing on the backburner for years...

never owned a 20" bike. my first bike as a kid was a english "lightweight" 3-speed, my 2nd bike a Dawes Galaxy 10-speed. I still have the Motobecane Grand Record 10 speed I bought in 1975...

I'm looking at a Chris King headset for my build and got lost reading install info on his site which called for having the head-tube faced. The last bike i built was back in the 80's, BMX stuff so this is actually something I have never heard of. So, I set out to buy a facing tool because I really enjoy working on bikes just as much as riding. Whoa, $300 plus for a good tool, that was for the head only, BB set up is additinal.

I totally understand the principles but wondered if it was truly necessary. What did the shop charge you for such a service?
