Yes I got lazy and didn't take the extracting bolt covers off the crank arms prior to reinstalling the right crank arm. No, they weren't lined up perfectly. Yes it did start to go on crooked and widen the gap in the spines. Yes the cranks do now wobble during a pedal stroke because they aren't on straight. Did I learn my leson from this??? Yes, I learned my lesson. And lastly will shimano warranty the part for me, maybe, but I wouldn't if I were them. I am truely a dumba$$ tonight. GRRRRR

since you did it at night. ...Just teasing. Acutally, I'm thinking about installing some Nokor Cables on my bike. It will be fun to see how I screw that one up.
