Do you know if you have a cartridge or traditional adjustable bottom bracket. It kind of sounds like you have an older bottom bracket that may just need to be adjusted (though it is difficult to tell from your post what the issue is). Just take it to a shop and they should be able to take care of it.

Read this thread, learn to type in English, then try again.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Lets allow for some cultural differences. Slang is different, you know , so let's dial it back a bit so all can enjoy.......

Disruption
Posts which intend to disrupt the topic of conversation or steer the topic away from the focus of the forum and related news. Disruption can include harassment, multiple user profiles, multiple posting of the same post and posting completely off topic messages. Please do your best when it comes to grammar, punctuation and spelling. Excessive use of "AOL'ese" and "hAx0r" talk can be very disruptive so please keep it to a minimum.

In other words, please spell like you completed at least year 8.

Cheers,

Brian

OK OK, I'm sorry.

It sounds like you just might need to have it adjusted.
