    Wow, serious BB problem.

    I was riding my fixed gear back home when all of a sudden i felt something slowing me down and within meters it brought me to a stop.
    I checked the rear wheel and noticed that it couldnt turn. The cranks are locked and the bottom bracket threads are showing about 1.5 cm.
    Why did my bottom bracket came loose?

    Maybe something went wrong with bearings?
    or
    Your bottom bracket is just messed up
    Either way I'd suggest getting a new bottom bracket, they aren't too expensive
