Anyone else find that Race Face cranks don't spin freely when you turn them by hand? Is this normal behaviour for them, or do I need to do some swapping and changing. New BB by the way.

    did you have the bb shell faced? or checked that it has been faced?

  • Yep. This is in several frames and only with Race Face BBs from Atlas and Diabolus cranks. Not my shimano ones.
