    I got nothing... Did you maybe put the bearing in backwards? Maybe they're too small for the bearing cups? Is the crank tweaked out of true? I don't know what else might have done it... Sorry bro!

    when you put the bearing and crank in, you hafta make sure the bearings are in there flush and not at an angle, you would thin they would line up when you tighten them, but most dont, dont feel so bad though ive crushed 3 on the same bike before :oops:
