How tight when fitting a Bottom Bracket? | Singletrack Magazine Forum bottom bracket too tight


Diagnosing a tight Bottom Bracket is a routine maintenance job.​ If the BB is too tight, it will not rotate without grinding or feeling stiff.​ If you diagnose this problem in an open/loose system, you must loosen the adjustable cup until the stiffness lessens.

If one side screws in without problems, and you've verified the thread orientation, then it's not a compatibility problem.
