    Bonking ... not feelin' well Bottom Bracket.......!!

    I think I broke my BB. Not sure how to tell. The BB rings are tight but things seem kind of "wiggly"! I can see movement in the crank arms. Thats a bad thing right? So if it is broken, What is a good strong BB to replace it with. I think I may have broke it smashing the bashguard against rocks on Rock Island, will that break BB's?

    It's possible.You have a BB tool? If not, I do, you can bring it over and we can take a look. I replaced mine this past summer with a new Race Face Evolve DH I think it was. Dude you're extreme!

    BB spindles are hard to break. Make sure that your crankbolts (the bolts that tighten the crank to the spindle) are tight.
