Oops. I might have overdone it.
Is it possible to overtighten a crankarm?
The crank is aluminum. The BB axle is steel. The crank arm came loose, so I decided to "enhance" the design and put a lock washer on before the crank bolt.
Then, I really reefed on the socket wrench to tighten the crank arm. It seemed to give just a bit more than I expected. Now, maybe it is my imagination, but the crank seems a little stiff or draggy.
Did I push the crank too far onto the axle? Is this possible?
