    Need some help with a bottom bracket

    Hey guys, just figured out the bottom bracket on my Giant is loose and I need to tighten it up. Anyone in the north scottsdale area have an ISIS wrench I could borrow or know how to do this really quick? Don't have a repair plan with any LBS shops down here and don't really want to get gouged on a repair. Definite six pack in the deal if anyone can help out!

    Here is a video of my crank woes...

    Just stop by Rage. No gouging there but they do like a Sixer now and then

    Pull your carnkarm off & check that again; yoiu may have a bigger problem.
    Hopefully you have self-extracting crank bolts, which allows easy removal of crankarm.

    A good shop won't charge too much to tighten that down. Especially if you bring beer.
    Also, check this place out in Tempe. I've made a visit there recently to put together a cheap spare parts bike. They have lots of tools you can use.
