Slight forward play on drivetrain
#1
I have a Triban 3 bought a few months ago. I have noticed recently that there is some slight forward play on the right crank before the drivetrain is engaged. It's more noticeable when setting off and putting my weight on that side and when cycling up hills. What do you think is causing it ? Regards Andy

I would venture a guess that it might be the crank arm. It could possibly be loose or loosening. Check the bolt.
