RD2 Messenger & Sugino BB fit problem
Ok, so I got the RD2 messenger cranks and the corresponding Sugino BB 68x103. But the fit looks really weird, so I'm wondering if I'm not installing it correctly or what.
By weird I mean that there does not seem to be enough spindle clearance for the left spindle. With the left err holder ring?, dunno what exactly it's called, threaded on there really isn't any clearance for tightening on the crank with a crank bolt.
I can barely get it to the point I would need a crank puller to remove the crank. And if I tighten beyond that it grinds into the the left holder thing of the bb.
And just as a double check I removed the BB and checked the fit of the crank with the holder thing put on. And the clearance is still the same.
So am I supposed to really torque my wrench and force the holder thing a little further onto the BB? Or is that clearance what I should expect and I'm not supposed to really tighten the crank bolt that much?
Or is something just defective?
