recently replaced spindle in bb. Adjustment was perfect when I replaced it. was lubing chain, and noticed resistance in bb when backpedaling by hand. removed chain from chainring, and resistance remains when pedaling forward as well as back. I haven't had any trouble in riding it, nor has it made any sounds. The resistance is incremental (i.e. it's smooth, then a jump, then smooth, and a jump...)
I recently loaned my crank puller to a friend, so fixing it will have to wait. was planning on doing a century tomorrow. Is it possible the adjustment had just somehow become too tight? Just hoping someone could tell me what to expect when I open it up, and if it became too tight, how to keep it from happening again.
