    S2200 Crank Arm How to tighten properly

    It says to torque it down to 50nm and I did but it feels like it's binding, so I loosen it to almost one full turn. Now it feels smooth again and has no play on the crank arm. Is this how you would tighten this or am I suppose to put a washer somewhere?

    Fyi..

    This is on my '12 Stumpjumper Carbon Evo.

    'Up to' would be the key words there. They give a range on the bolt head that you should tighten between, and you should stop when there is no play in the cranks and you are within the range. I would guess too tight, but it's worth taking apart and trying again, making sure the bearing dust covers are seated.

    From the instruction sheet:
    Check the assembly for play by rocking the crank arms back and forth away from frame. If the crank moves, tighten crank arm bolt until no play is detected. If maximum torque of 54 Nm (478 in-lb) has been achieved, remove the crank arm from the spindle, apply additional grease and repeat installation procedures until play is eliminated.
