I needed a compact crankset for my climbing bike and so I picked up this Sram Force crankset from eBay.  All was going well until I find that the spindle is loose!

From the pics below one can see that the spindle is able to move in and out of the crank slot.  This actually isn’t a problem, or at least to me it doesn’t because once the inside of the crank face meets the bottom bracket bearing all of the play will be “pulled” out.  The real problem here is for some reason the inside face does not protrude far enough out to make contact with the BB bearing.  Custom spacer time…
