<< Has anybody ever had a Phil move sideways? It happened on two Jack

Taylor tandems (both within CR timeline!), rear BB. We noticed the

right-side chainrings were grinding on the chainstay, grinding hard!

In both cases, the lockrings were VERY tight, but not glued in with

Locktite. Same BB, both times, swapped from one bike to other. BSC

thread. Drivetrain is standard: from the offending BB, the right

crank has a chain to the rear wheel, left crank chain to front

cranks. It happened within 500 miles of installation.

Is it a Phil thing, or a Taylor thing? I replaced the BB with a

Ritchey (fixed cup), and no more problems. But I'd like to reuse the

Phil, so I want to figure out what happened... >>

They need to be fixed with Locktite... says so in the instructions (or it did in the BB I got)
