Thanks for the Larry's recommendation! Stopped by there this morning. Larry was out but one of his employees had a look, diagnosed it as a loose cup issue ( i should have included more pics for you guys) and tightened the cups/bb. Only issue is apparently I've now developed a front derailleur issue. I've toyed around with limiter screws in addition to the cable but the derailleur is refusing to shift out of my high gear - not really a problem I guess as I rarely ever used the low gear - and a problem I'll leave till I'm working again.

Finally, do you realize that your profile says "Seattle" and not NYC?
Thank you for the kind offer - i actually live in the UWS too. As I mentioned above, larry's shop seems to have fixed the BB issue - at least for now. I appreciate you offering your tools out but I'm sure I would have botched the job even with multiple tutorials.

I know my profile says Seattle. Definitely due for a change. Its leftover from when I started the account and I was in undergrad. I've actually lived in three cities since but always intended to move back to Seattle hence the lack of change.
