    Bushnell EBB in Dean setscrew BB - an update

    As per request, hereís an update from my previous post: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=50642
    I got the Bushnell EBB from Nova on Wednesday and installed it right away tried it for a quick spin and it seemed to stay tight. As I had a race on Sunday (Huntsville Classic, TX) I went out on Saturday for a more extensive trial on some minor local climbs to see if the EBB would hold up to the grinding. No problem everything was neat and tight like a schoolgirl. Racing on Sunday was problem free for the first half and then I started hearing the dreaded creaking. The creaking must have been quite annoying to the people I came up behind on, I never had to call out anything . With a quarter of the distance to go I started dropping my chain and had to ride carefully for the remainder not to drop the chain, still dropped it three more times, at one occasion my chain had gotten so entangled in it self that I had to take the power link of to untangle the chain Ė bummer.

    When I got home I inspected the EBB and found the tightening screw to have come loose. Now the question is whether the screw came loose because I had not torqued it sufficiently of because my BB shell is slightly big and I need a shim? From other posts Iíve read of some people breaking the bolt due to overtorqueing it and Iím not sure of what to use for a shim, there isnít that much room, so it has to be quite thin.

    Any suggestions, thoughts??

    Cheers,

    SSSS

    a little extra grease or perhaps

    use anti-sieze. Give it a good coating, all around. Maybe it will help fill the gaps and provide a tighter fit.

    Good luck.

    here's the thread

    I knew it had been done. I read any SS post about Dean SS's to validate myself.

    I live in the Woodlands - most of my riding is as a (cringe) roadie, but plan on doing more SS in winter (oh the cold cold Houston winters). I'm good for a ride, let me know!
