    EBB slipping

    My ebb on my GT Peace is slipping, how can I stop it?
    Any hints?

    I just noticed your thread, I am having the same problem with my Niner s.i.r. 9 Twice now have I had enough slippage to throw a chain, kind of a pisser. I believe my bike has a paragon eccentric bb but will have to take a closer look.

    How old is your Peace? Some of the early ones came with bolts that were too short to sufficiently do their job, but that was like a year ago or so.

    I could post two pages on all the steps that are potential fixes and still not guess at the right problem, but if you're ever in doubt take it to a shop. Easy stuff would be to remove the crank arms and then the bottom bracket and once they're out of the way remove the eccentric itself. If it isn't slathered in water proof grease inclucing any bolts, then try that and reassemble and tighten to manufacturer's specifications with a torque wrench. Something could be deformed, especially if the previous fix was just to tighten the crap out of it so if the simple stuff doesn't fix it, take it to professionals.

    I replaced my stock EBB with a Carver, I occasionally have to tighten it but other than that it's perfect, no slippage or noisy creaking.
