ok so i just got american cups so i installed my cranks, oddesey wombaolt and then my cranks dontn even move.. i have the rite bearing sset the rite cups and everything im soo pissed, then i go to look at my sidekick and the screen is broken! im soooo mad
I'm not familar with wombolts, but do they have a spacer tube like thing that goes inside the BB shell, and if so did you put it in?
i got the wombolts too, and every bottom bracket needs that spacer in between the bearings, its to keep the bearings from pushing in on each other.......and a word of advice, don't get the mechanik BB, the spacer is about 1.5 mm too long, i had to file it down so my bearings wouldn't stick out.
did you get the odyssey bb?
Sidekicks are neat, but a waste of money unless you have internet with em. As to the crank, got all spacers in? Did you overtighten at all?
I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.
the internal spacer has to be present for the wombolts to work properly
oh i put the bottom bracket tube inn , i think i forgot the spacers tho, the wombolts r so hard to in install
