    Eccentric BB - stuck wedges

    Hi guys & gals

    I've got a Chase frame with the eccentric bottom bracket, but the wedges are stuck. There is no washer and clip after the bolt. I have tried to unscrew it a few turns and then knock it, but the wedge doesn't move. Any tricks?

    Cheers!

    Back 2 turns, knock harder.

    And add some grease to the wedges-surface before resemble.

    Otherwise, heating will solve your problem a good "warm air-gun" will help you.

    There was probably a washer and clip and it popped off after loosening the bolt. I have had that happen to all my Cannondale SS's at some point. To get the EBB free you really have to whack the non-drive side with a hammer. I replaced my EBB's with Bushnells.

    I used to have to really whack on the bolt to loosen the EBB on my old 1FG. My 4mm hex driver is still bent from those times.
