    Cheapest Eccentric bottom bracket?

    Picked up a cheap 29er frame that needs a EBB, 54mm ID and 68 width. this will be for a beater/around town single speed. the cheapest EBB i've found is the carver for about 100 shipped, is there anything cheaper than that? not worried about creaking and won't be pushing this bike even remotely hard.

    What frame is it? Just making sure you need the expander type and not the set-screw type EBB. I had a Gary Fisher Rig and the EBB drove me nuts. I couldn't stand it so I switched to a Karate Monkey frame.

Your other alternative may be to hit a road bike forum such as that on Bikefroums.net, and ask in the tandem section since some have swapped out that same style or the Cannondale styles for the lighter and better quality Bushnells.
