Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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?
Your bottom bracket is just messed up
Either way I'd suggest getting a new bottom bracket, they aren't too expensive
