    Cannondale 1FG eccentric bottom bracket - how does it compare to others?

    Cannondale 1FG eccentric bottom bracket - how does it compare to others?

    I am interested in this bike but I am a bit unsure about the Eccentric BB that cannondale uses. I would like to know how the cannondale design compares to other eccentrics out on the market. I believe the cannondale uses a wedge design, others use like a set-screw (phil wood - I think).

    I am considering an 03' 1FG a dealer still has -- also wondering if cannondale changed their design from the first 03 to the current?

    I searched on the topic, found some info on eccentrics but now much on the cannondale eccentric.

    Also, related to the 03' 1FG, was the frame that year and Optimo frame? It seems now they are using the Furio frameset. While being lighter does the optimo frame allow a little bit more ride compliance (if you can call aluminum compliant).

    Thanks for you input.

    Did you look at the 1FG reviews in the review section? There are some complaints about the EBB back then.
