    Cannondale Trail SL 3 SS - EBB adjustment

    Has anyone toyed around with the EBB on their 2013 SL 3 SS? I loosened it up and gave it some mallet action but it didn't want to budge so I brought it to my LBS, but they set the chain way too tight. It's a hassle for me to bring it back so I'd like to do it myself if possible.

    It has a main bolt for the compression wedges and then another tiny bolt but I have no idea what its role is.

    Any pointers?

    The tiny bolt butts against the frame, to ensure the bottom bracket assembly is aligned correctly. Make sure you are tapping the right side, you tap the wedge on the non-drive side, then allen key in the hole, to adjust, then tighten using the main wedge bolt.
