So I'm new to bmx so I'm a bit un-informed on the subject. I asked someone what kind of bb would fit my bike and they suggested one to me, I bought a 19 mm Mid Bottom Bracket but when I try to put it in the frame is has a few millimetres wiggle room. I checked the spindle to try find the diameter but the only numbers on there were "11 8 S" I have a 2012 ABD Player 1 bike. ABD is a NZ/Au bike brand of that helps.

19 mm does not matter for fitting in your frame , 19 mm is the size of your crank spindle , all mid bbs are the same for outer diameter fitting in your frame , if mid does not fit in your frame no mid bb will fit in your frame , it's different than a mid

Hmmm, kind of odd...

Should be one of these sizes

Spanish is smaller than mid.

If Mid is too small, my guess is that it would be American. Measure it and let us know.
