    Are you happy with your non specific SS Frame?

    Are the chain-tensioners(which ones?) working for you or you wished you would have gone with a SS specific frame?

    nothing cleaner than tensioner-less, no der. hanger, no ebb, no track ends.
    eccentric hub or bb, then hit that hanger with the dremel and file.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    I'm running a frame with horizontals now but have had tensioners in the past on other frames. If I were to do a frame without track ends I would probably look for one with paragon sliders. If you are wanting to stay with verticals then an ebb or a eccentric hub probably be only choices without dirtying it up with a der style chain tensioner.

    But in order for me to use an EBB I have to get a frame with an oversized BB shell right?

    Mine is semi horizontal drop-out but still use tensioner.

    It's just that my rear hub/axle a little bit loose which make my chain tension loose.

    Yeah I've been looking at it after I posted my question. Search function does help. LOL. From what I saw on the website of FC it will fit my XT crankset right?
