Crank Clearance when bolts are torqued- single speed bike, help appreciated
my friend bought Sugino grand mightys for his urban outfitters singlespeed bike (dont ask me why -_-)
he asked me to install it because i have the tools.
i have a slight problem that could get bigger.
i installed the bottom bracket, i seated the cranks and torqued in the bolts to +/- 25 ft lbs
i rode it around a bit to test it out my work....not so good, the drive side arm was kissing the stay everytime it went up.
i sat down with the bike, cried a bit, then started over.
i double checked the bottom bracket, reinstalled it. reseated the cranks but this time i didnt push the drive crank all the way in with the wrench (so the drive side is not torque +/- 25 ft lbs). and WAH LAH, the crank clears the chainstay.
my question is: Is there anyway for me to torque the crank around 25 ftlbs without pushing it all through the spindle? i need about 1mm or 1.5mm of space for the crank to clear the stay.
thank you for reading, and any help/comments appreciated.
