    Outboard bearings w/EBB?

    I was looking at the new Deus crank. Will it work with my pinch bolt EBB? Will it get in the way of the little hole used for adjustments?

    can't really speak for RF, but the new XTR works fine with my pinchy ebb.

    Someone else mentioned the XTR works on their expandy-EBB. The same tool is used for both Shimano and RaceFace cups... so with the same outer diameter, it should all work, in theory.

    The new BBT-9 Bottom Bracket Tool is designed to remove and install Shimano® Hollowtech II, Race Face® X-type, FSA® MegaExo, and Truvativ® Giga X-pipe bottom brackets. Laser cut for a precise fit, one end of the BBT-9 securely engages the 16 notches of the bottom bracket cups, while the other end engages the 8 internal splines of the crank arm adjustment cap.

    I have a Phil Wood EBB and the new 960 outboard bearing XT cranks with the split BB shell and pinch bolts on my new ByStickel and it works just fine. No problems with clearance or adjustments at all. I would think the Race Face would work the same way.
