How much resistance is normal for Isis BB's?
Had a creaking i narrowed down to dry crank/bb threads so i pulled em, cleaned em up and regreased all the threads. reinstalled and noticed an increase in resistance. i backed off the non drive side cup a tiny smidge, which helped a bit, but still there's a bit more than there was at the start.
there's no roughness or grinding, the bearings seem smooth enough, but if i give the cranks a good spin with chain off they spin maybe once around and stop.
i know i need to abandon the isis setup eventually but should i sweat it now?
