I've got an 853 Jamis Dragon frame that I'm pulling the shimano crank out of and putting in a Truvative Giga Pipe BB and ISIS crankset. The frame shell is a 68mm and the spindle is 113. The Giga BB calls for a spacer on the drive side for 68mm shells, but in order to get it so seat properly in the shell, I need to use a spacer on both sides, which is consistent with SRAM's instructions on the web. Problem is, when I snug the cups to the BB shell, the spindle tightens up and has a huge amount of drag.
What gives? Any install tips/tricks/advice? Is there a better/different placement for the spacers? 2 on the drive side does not work at all.
