I recently replaced my BB when I switched over to Ultegra from the Bontrager system. I found that when you get the sleeve that close to the BB outer edge it gets very hard to screw on. You have to almost force it in a way, what I mean by that it feels like you could almost strip threads but in effect it breaks a little lose and then seats flush to the BB outer edge.
If you had someone at the LBS that put it on that has not done this alot or may be new they may have thought they had it all the way in. Although visual inspection would show that it was not. I would simply take it back to them and ask them.
I assume you use a 68 and that is a 68 that they put on. Is the other side flush?
