New Build: Tight BB??

I just built up a trail/street bike on a Fit Benny frame. Parts came off another bike that was barely ridden. BB bearings are new. The crank seems a little tight, at least in the work stand. Will this loosen up? Or are my tolerances too close? This is my first BMX build.

Grease it and ride it, they should loosen up.

I greased it good when I installed. Once the rain stops, I'll be riding!

Trails bike on a benny? Youre insane.

Sounds like you need a longer internal spacer in your bottom bracket.

My trails consist of a path around my yard with some mild jumps and landings. Not like a *real* trail in the woods or something.

Needs an internal spacer, or a longer one. I have one the perfect length for my BB, and I tighten the literal shit out of my spindle bolt and it spins excellent. Same goes for you OP, did you include the internal spacer of the correct length? How tight is it? Because new bottom brackets feel a tad tight at first but it shouldn't be real tight feeling.

Considering you said "or nah," you should probably sell your bike and purchase a gun and one bullet.
