    EBB positioning question

    When I tighten down and set the EBB, in what position should the bottom bracket be? Foreward? Aft? Up? Down? Anywhere I prefer?

    Yes.

    It's a bike, if you like it a particular way then fantastic, if not... change it.

    Where ever you prefer.
    If you want more pedal clearance, run it up.
    Forward or back is going to depend more on your gearing. You might have enough adjustment to shorten or lengthen the chain to choose.
    Remember to check your saddle position after you get your basic EBB position.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
