crank installation: what am i droing wrong?
Ok, i'm new to this.....
FSA Crankset (ISIS)
FSA bottom bracket (ISIS)
Bottom bracket is installed. Trying to install crankset. Spindles are greased, bolt and washer are greased.
As far as I can tell from reading the ISIS spec, ISIS splines aren't keyed.
Cranks don't just slide on. I assume this is what this whole press fit thing is about. I can bolt down one 99% of the way but the drive side crank still has 2mm or more of spindle showing (before the blocker) and more muscle isn't making the bolt go. I figure i must be doing something wrong. Should i be using a rubber mallet to bang the cranks on and then tighten it down? Barnett's shows use of the rubber mallet earlier in the process but not later. Zinn never mentions a mallet, nor does the FSA instructions.
