How Many Miles for a Bottom Bracket?
I have a Fuji Newest 3.0 with 11,600 miles on it. I believe the bottom bracket is a square taper. Except for very rare and brief occasions, I ride on dry pavement, and I am a recreational rider.
I've noticed a little "catch" during my pedal stroke on occasion, and I can feel it in the pedals. Also I can take the pedals in my hand, move them perpendicular to the plane of the bike, and feel a slight movement.
I'm figuring it's time for a new bottom bracket.
Would appreciate the benefit of your experience.
