    Truvativ cranks - attachment issue, torque?

    I have a set of Truvativ Holzfeller cranks with the Truvativ BB. I just assembled a new DJ bike with this crankset. Build went together fine, but when I tighten the cranks the BB binds and does not turn easily. When I loosen them, it feels fine; but the cranks are not tight enough to ride. I am not excessively tightening the cranks, so what's up? Did I screw up on the number of spacers needed for the BB (73mm)? Any help here would be appreciated.

    one spacer on the drive side for a 73mm

    is your bb shell faced properly?

    is the crankstop/seal in place?

    Yes, I have the one spacer on the drive side for a 73mm. The crankstop/seal is in place. I did not get the bb shell faced. Could that be the problem?

    it could be...u could be side loading the bearings....do the cups look like they are in straight with no gaps (even if they do it;s always good to face the shell)

    It looks fine, but I might as well get it done (I hope that is it!)
