ok i got the bike today and the first thing i did was try to install my primos. well the bearings when put in the bb left a gap around the bearing and the bb instead of being pressed in. i dont understand this! they would actually just go right in then without touching them would just fall right back out. they are the bearings that came with the cranks and the general lee calls for american bb so whats the deal here?

general lee uses american bb

primos have a 22mm spindle

so you need Sealed 22mm American BB

my last bike weighed almost 40 pounds so 29 pounds wont affect me, just need those things called muscles. yeah the cranks are used off of my old bike. thanks for the advice!
