Crossthreaded BB

I was so clever (read CLUMSY :( ) to crossthread the BB on my Mtb. To who can I take in the Bellville/Brackenfell area to have it sorted. Obviously need to be a shop that has the correct tool for this job. How much can I expect to pay for this?

Stuff happens. Learn and move on. Try and find an old steel cup and use that to chase the thread. Be careful, keep it parallel and all that. If you are scared, go to a bike shop with a threader. I don't live in the colonies, so I can't recommend one.

Thanks Johan. Next question, Ke bokae? (much can I expect to pay to have a pro at a shop to sort this out for me?)

Got this sorted out. Took Bike to WeBike and had BB sorted out for the measly sum of R50-00. Thanks Willie, Willie and Carlo.
