    B Bracket - how do you tell it's worn out?

    It's spring time - got my cranks off, and the BB out. There was a lot of grease in the casing, and the spindle spins with no resistance. Does this mean it's time for a new one. I seem to recall reading that the spindle should have a little resistance to it, but can't find the post.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Spins smooth and straight, sound good to me. You'll know when your riding with a shot BB.
