    which eccentric BB to go with? other options?

    I really don't want to use a chain tensioner, so which is the best way to go with a frame that has vertical dropouts?

    thx.

    great. I'll read more on this. It seems the Eccentric BB is the only way to go. I just don't want a headache. I would rather get one that is better and pay more if needed.

    thx.

    I like the Niner EBB design, but it requires the frame to have the larger BB mounting tube. The one I posted above will work on standard sizes, so you can SS any standard frame. I have a Ti frame picked out, and if I SS it, then I will use it.

    My frame is a 97 Ibis Mojo. really looking forward to setting this up. I have some real nice MOOTS parts for it as well. But really looking for the best BB option that won't give me a hassle. I wish KING made an eccentric BB. Then I would know there would be no issues.

    My LBs has one available. People are already using them, as witnessed by the threads here. There is a buy now button at the blog page. I don't know what delivery lead times are.
