I think the SRAM BB30 spindle is a little too much smaller than the race of the bearing, and I never noticed this with FSA.. I am considering putting some loctite 641 on the spindle and inner race (removable grade). I was just wondering how have you guys removed loctite'd spindle, do you cool it down and keep knocking it out.

Are you saying that the spindle is loose in the bearings? Have you mic'ed both the spindle and bearing inner diameter to see which is out of spec? My SRAM Red BB30 spindle was quite tight in the SRAM ceramic bearings.
