    I'm returning the BB and I have another one which I believe is correct on the way.
    Obviously the balls need to match the cups. If your balls are too big, then problems ensue. Good luck with your new ones.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

    if i like and want to keep a bike, i do not use retainers for the bearings. i use loose bearings. in a normal bb that uses 1/4" balls in retainers, you fit two additional loose bearings on each side to spread the load a little more.

    if it's a cheaper bike (a flip), using retainers makes it a little easier to install the bb.

    if unsure about bearing size or count, look up the component on velobase. it's very easy to test bearing size and count by spinning the spindle in the dry cup full of bearings but without grease.
    Yossarian: don't worry. nothing's going to happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.

    So what was the issue that was causing the problem?

    Everybody says they want to have big balls, but sometimes your balls can be too big, I guess.

    This was kind of an interesting puzzle. Thanks for the entertainment and education. Glad you got it sorted.
