    Haters gon' hate!

    I want zipp stickers for a future pair of Chinese carbon wheels I may own.

    Obviously they are not zipps, but thats why it is funny.

    People take themselves too seriously.

    Phil wood save my SS. Funny how a well known highly refined engineering company save my underground, nose turned down chinese carbon fiber. The philencentric EBB is crazy looking and even more intense is the alignment tool but the thing works. I have 40 miles on the SS and I love it again. I think the next step is to put a carbon fork on it.

    It will cost you as much as the frame $300. I am new to SS and I love carbon. I have a carbon FS 29er and love it. I guess Ti and steel are both great SS frames hoever they weigh 2x's as much. So for around $700 I have a carbon SS frame.

    $300 is a little steep. I think I'll get a frame with the bb30 and get the BEER EBB.
    BEER Components Eccentrics & Shims

    $160 and I think it comes with the tool.

    It looks like we have the same frame and I have perfect tension with a 32x20 with a half link. If my chain (3/32) doesn't stretch too much I won't need anything and the 32x20 lets me get up the hills, which is what it's all about to begin with, unless of course you are going DOWN! :)

    It won't look right without a ziptye to the stay..I use an oring, just the right spring rate. Push up for more wrap also.
