Bottom Bracket Question on my New 9:zero:7
Hello! I am brand spanking new to the Fat Bike world. I have road bike all my life. I started with bmx as a kid and road bike in college. Once I got in to the work force and had kids my bike time dramatically decreased. I picked up my road bike again four years ago and haven't got off since. I had my best year of riding ever in 2012. I don't want it to stop. When the snow started to fly, I decided to purchase a fat bike.
I test road, researched and liked the ride of the 9:zero:7 the best. It fit me like a dream. I loved how it handled. I pulled the trigger yesterday. After my first ride, I noticed something on the non-drive side of the bottom bracket. Specifically, the bottom bracket doesn't sit tight up against the shell casing and there is a small gap. There is no wiggle or play in the BB and everything is torqued out to spec.
This doesn't seem right though. It seems this area is way too exposed to the elements and grime.
Coming from the road side of the sport, I am not familiar with this bottom bracket nor bike setup. So, I want to get some feedback before dragging everything back to my lbs. I live in the sticks and over an hour away from the closest 9:zero:7 dealer. It isn't too local.
