    Bushnell, Carver, or Biocentric

    OK, I am gonna try this one last time. I have done all I can to get my Dillinger's set screw EBB to hold. My choices are to get rid of it or try a different EBB. I am leaning towards the Carver with the Delrin sleeve. My concern is that the sleeve, which is supposed to keep it creak free may not hold as well. I like the Bushnell (the light one and the original), but you grease the crap out of them for install. That seems a bit counterintuitive to me (not sayin' it won't work...just sayin'). Of the three the Niner Bio seems the least robust. If anyone has a good or bad experience with these, I would appreciate the feedback. Thanks.

    I have good experience with the Carver in a One9 and the GF "Bushnell" in a Rig and a Ferrous. If you get the Carver be careful with the bolt - it'll round out if you're not careful. I think they fixed this several years ago, but take heed.

    My "Bushnell" advice is to use anti-seize from the auto parts store. I've ridden my Rig for about 2 years and never taken the EBB out to service it (and never had a sound/slippage from it either).

    The Carver has been a perfect addition to my Rig. Slip and creak free.

    I ordered the Carver. So we'll see what happens. If this doesn't work for my riding, I am going to go geared frame and either "magic gear" or YESS ETR/B.

    When installing the Carver EBB, make sure the mating surfaces are super clean. I used alcohol to prep before installation. Its been bulletproof using this method.
