loose spindle
« on: September 12, 2007, 01:08:17 AM »
If you can wiggle the bottom bracket spindle, does it mean that the bearings are broken? I took off the crank arms and there is some play inside the bottom bracket, and the cups are not loose. I can wiggle the spindle up and down and side to side a bit. It is an unsealed european bottom bracket. Any suggestions? Thanks.

heres a suggestion. take it apart and look at it. i mean, would you expect an auto mechanic to tell you what's wrong with your car without seeing it?
