I will be going back to my LBS tomorrow due to an ongoing problem.
My "plastic" BB non-drive side cup had a crack so I took it in today, they replaced it with a metal one, which I thought "great", this should be an upgrade and at least be stronger.
Listed below is the problem, and what can you tell me whats wrong with it so I know what to say at LBS before I go, I would like to print off the replies of those who know what their talking about and take it with me as reference:
Here are the details and some observations;
The metal cup they installed is flush with the frame, there is no locking piece/nut (should there be one?).
If either crank is flexed towards or away from the bike by hand you can see the other crank moving the same, it is loose.
By moving the crank this way I can also see that the BB cup they installed is moving back and forth also, which I am sure is not correct.
What damage may have been caused by this repair?
I bought this bike one month ago to the day (bought on 6-16-07).
Any help and thoughts on this will be a great help for me, I would like to be able to ask the correct questions/concerns before I go in tomorrow.
