One way is to go on a 5 -10 mile ride and when you get home check the crank again...if it's loose then you probably need a new crank arm and bb...hopefully it holds up. You got to put them on tight! Maybe poor assembly at the shop that sold it to you... This is likely a minor problem, even if you had to replace the bottom bracket and the crank arm.. I'm guessing somewhere in the 40 dollar range for the parts! 10 bucks for the tool. If you want someone to do if for you post in the lafayette CL...there are tons of people in that town that could totally help you out!
