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!

Let me know when you decide to remove that crank and put it back on the right bike. :wink:

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:

the way I see it is I did and can ride it like a mountain bike....heck i rode it down a set of steps and even took a nice jump to see how it would do,,it did just fine....and got air.
I love this site and I love bikes even more and thats what it's all about. :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p :p
