New Truvativ Team SL BB

I just installed a new Truvativ Team SL ISIS Bottom Bracket. The bearings feel really tight. Is this normal for a new BB? Will they loosen up after a few miles? The cranks will not spin freely more than a half of turn.

If you torqued it to spec it may just be some initial drag. After you ride it the bearings will break in. Pretty common on truvativ & sram BB's.
