    I recently bought a used cowan. It came with AC 3 piece cranks and a 48 splined euro BB. I found that the BB spindle is too long for the cranks, so the cranks don't get full tight on the spindle, there's just a touch of side to side play.

    Anybody else have this problem and know of a solution besides buying a new BB? and if I need a new BB, do most bikes shops stock a euro 48 splined BB?

    Thanks for the help.

    my bike:

    04 Kona Cowan, small
    Mavic 729
    Maxxis Hookworm F
    Maxxis BlingBling R
    Avid Mech Disc
    Marz DJ1
    profile 32 Single speed
    AC 3 piece cranks
    King Head Set
