No chain - just grab the crank arm and spin. How many times should it spin? I know - lots of variables, e.g. pedals on? how hard did you spin it? But in general - should it spin 15-25 times or 2-4 times?
With a new BB all snugged up, the cranks feel buttery smooth - no noticeable resistance... but with a hard spin, they turn 2 times. My guess is that after one ride, they'll loosen up a bit?
