Unlike the rest of the broken bottom bracket questions, my bottom bracket does not make any noise or feel like anything is grinding.
There is about 1/2cm of play left to right that i can see on the top chainring. I can definitely feel it being loose.
What is the worst amount of damage that I can do to my bike riding like this? (assuming that I dont fall off and die etc because of this little matter)
The bracket itself is new(ish) it was installed there about a year ago, but I did ride 50 miles per week on it since.
What could have caused this to happen? My best guess right now is that someone did this to my bike because I park it out doors while I am at work.
edit: My level of expertise in that area of the bike is pretty low, so here is a video of what is happening:
(set quality to HD)
I noticed that on the side of my chainrings there is a noticeable gap between the seal and the bottom bracket.
So what is going on here? and more importantly can I fix it myself without special tools
Can I expect any kind of a warranty from the bike shop who put this in a year ago ?
Solved: Took out the bottom bracket. It is fine and so are the cranks. The threads on the frame are not fine though. I need a new frame :P
