    New Enduro BB question

    Greetings all .....

    I'm new to this forum, but not mtn. biking. However, I am a better rider than a bike mechanic.

    I just recieved a 2005 Enduro 130 Comp that was shipped new in the box from Calif. The bike looks awesome and I am tweaking it to fit me. While doing this I noticed that the crankset and bottom bracket make a grind noise and do not turn smoothly. Could it be a problem?

    I hope someone on this forum can tell me if this is normal or not. My other bike , a Scalpel with higher end components, spins smoothly and feels tighter.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have the chain off the front chainrings and it still feels like it's grinding, probably the BB. I know Spec likes to use the crappy ES31 BB, my Stumpy came with the same one. I just swapped it for the ES71, which is MUCH better for only $30 online.
