1007Re: [Geared_hub_bikes] Re: Stop me if you've heard this: new eccentric BB
- May 1, 2009Some sort of eccentric seems like the elegant solution IMO (except maybe weight) on a single speed/IGH bike. It allows vertical dropouts which make for easy wheel removal and there's no adjusting the rear disc brake when you adjust the chain tension. My EBB works just dandy. No creaks and no fuss. I had to change a tube on the road a few weeks back and the R&R of the wheel was about as easy as a derailleur bike.

- does it adjust for a full link?
- might be a low cost solution for SS/IGH chainlines if the frame is a disc compatiable and no tensioner is required.
One would have to love their frame and hate tensioners to use this solution. A Surly tensioner cost $40, SS frames are starting to proliferate at the $200 level. I'm sure they'll sell, I'd would buy a new/used frame before I would purchase this solution.
