what are you trying to ask? lol

if you are asking why your bb is so tight, it is either your chain being too tight, your bb being too tight, something is wrong with your bearings, or maybe your spindle is bent.

Put lot's of grease in there, and spin them until the grease is in all the nooks and crannies. Should work after that
