Is this bottom bracket correctly installed?

Just wondered if this BB has been wound into the frame enough...have tried to get the best pics possible of each side. :D Thanks

    Looks fine - driveside all the way in and non-drive as far as it will go. I assume all that damage on the dirve side is unshipped chain damage and the BB isn't cross threaded or anything?

    Thanks mate! :D

    Yup that's from the times the chain has dropped off the smallest chainring (AFAIK at least)

    What about if you turn the crank by hand, does it move without ressistance?

    My Raceface was incorrectly fitted. But other than that yours looks fine.

    looks good. For the non drive i would say thats acceptable.

    Thanks guys! It turns very freely. It occurred to me that if it wasn't properly seated that could cause the gears to be misaligned. (Still got some tuning problems)
