I know most of y’all that actually ride have probably experience this and i was wondering if someone has a solution

My profile column cranks are tight evenly placed on the spindle but they still have up and down movement to them

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

Add a spacer on the non-drive side.

Not sure, but i just rotated my crank arms to new positions and its seemed to work, I’ll leave an update after i ride tomorrow since I’ll be doing a 30+ mile ride should be enough to tell if it worked

Ah, I thought you meant the spacing on the spindle. Get 2 thin washers and put one on either side, although, it may mess with your chainline a little.

I didn't need to add any spacers, rotating the cranks on the spindle seemed to work my bikes back to feeling solid, now all i have to do is find some good grease to squeeze inside my hub so the clutch doesn’t make this annoying clicking noise after i pedal

If you don't have enough spacers, they'll loosen again.
