I'd use a crown race setter with the appropriate diameter and interface. Not worth buying one, IMO, but your LBS can do it in about a minute. Finger-tight isn't how you want it.

According to one source, the BB1000 is for a 73mm (mountain bike) bottom bracket shell width. Quite probably, it will also fit a 68mm shell with spacers, but check first. While the 19mm spindle...

I have a Smartwool one that's my #1 piece of cold-weather gear. If you've never used a neck warmer, you'll be amazed at how effective they are; I usually have to take mine off within an hour.

I've never found that V-brakes or disc brakes require much of any adjustment, and when they do, it's pretty simple. If you buy quality parts you'll eliminate the "maintenance" complaint.
