Default Crank Problems


After I have been riding and jumping for a wile, my cranks start to get
lose and make noise. No matter how much I tighten them they still get
lose.

Have you greased the axle and bolts? A little bit of car/b*cycle grease
on each side of the axle and on the bolt thread should seal up any gaps
and help them to stay on and in place. Another option is to put Loctite
on the bolts instead of the grease, but still grease the axle.

Seriously, when putting a crank on a tapered hub, grease the parts, make
sure the parts are together right, then whack it on good with a hammer.
This will seat the parts together tightly.

If you don't have a brass hammer, use a wood block to pound on, to
avoid smash marks.

i machined off 1.5 mm off end of hub ,first i meaured both sides using a
vernier and one was longer than the other (the hub was actually too
long for the crank arm ,so when you do the bolt up it doesnt clamp
properly) or it could be your crank have been machined too deep

only a rubbish sketch but left hand diagram shows hub is longer than
crank so no matter how tight the bolt is the crank and the hub will
never tighten up against each other ,
the right hand diagram shows how it should look
