So I'm looking over at my fixed bike today and I noticed that the crank arms are not exactly 180 degrees opposite of eachother. The left arm is rotated foward by degree or so. I suppose I've bent (twisted) the spindle. Funny I didn't notice it while riding, but now its going to drive me nuts until I replace it. Thats never happened to me before, even in years of BMX jumping, acid drops, wall rides, etc. I skip-stop frequently, but I've never crashed or acid dropped my fixie or anything. I can't imagine that skipping causes enough torque to bend the crank spindle. In fact I mostly skip with my left foot back, which would torque the spindle in the opposite direction. I'm just wondering how the hell I torqued my spindle so hard that it bent, or is it possible that its just a poorly made spindle and that the crank arms have never been properly lined up?
