When we first inspected this bike there was a lot of play in the bottom bracket and we assumed that the play was due to worn out bearings. However, when we went to remove the crank the drive side bearing cup came right out of the frame with the crank and was seized on the crank:/ The entire bottom bracket had been spinning inside of the frame instead of spinning on the bearings! Since the bb shell was now too big we decided to go with a thread together bottom bracket to cinch the bb into the shell. It worked great, with absolutely no play in the bottom bracket, and since it’s threaded together this customer should have many creak-free miles in the future!
