I hope this is the appropriate place to ask this question.
I just purchased a new Trek Navigator 200 and the crank or Bottombracket is slightly off so that if you look at the front derailleur you can see the chain moving approx. 1/16" from side to side when turning.
The bike shop said that this is normal for that type of bottom bracket. Bolted on I guess-no spline??
I have my doubts as all of the other bikes I have ever purchased have straight and true cranksets .
they checked it to make sure it was tight.
I guess this is why I got that brand of bike
