very slight play in new cartridge bottom bracket

Postby neeharpattni » Sat Feb 09, 2013 18:42 pm

Hi All

I've recently replaced the bottom bracket on my old raleigh mountain bike which I use for commuting. The item I've replaced the old cup and cone system with is: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=71369

After fitting it there is a very small amount of play in the bottom bracket and wondered if this is normal or should it be completely play-less if brand new?

Thanks for your help in advance.

well there is nothing you can do other than replace it.

check that it is not moving else where and if you are not happy send it back.

Sorry I'm just wondering if that's how they normally are or is there supposed to be no play whatsoever?
