crankset wobble, help?
#1
My crankset seems to be wobbling a good bit so I thought i must've needed spacers or something, but my BB shell is 68mm and i have a road frame, so i shouldnt need one (i think?). I asked online and the general consensus seems to be that theres something wrong with my BB bearings. I was wondering if any of you who're more experienced could confirm whether or not thats the case.

Bottom bracket: Sram GXP Crankset: Sram Omniums

seems to be a problem with those external bearing BBs, take a look at this video to see if it helps much
