I'll post some photos soon.

I have an eccentric BB in my Raleigh, and you rotate the whole thing inside the BB shell to keep the chain taut. There are a couple of grub screws that keep it in place.

Same priciple but the eccentric bb is out side the bb shell.

Allows you to run a regular bike ss.

Nice idea (except it means yo have to use ext bb crans)

Edit in ref to Sifters post: I'm sure that other one works abit different to that. As in the Raleigh the BB fits in the shell bit that rotates.
I don't remember how the BB fitted or if it was just an Axle in the Excentricker.

I've used one of these on a Scott Endorphin. It saved me reworking the dropouts and is easy to adjust on the trail. Since the chainline was sorted, it's worked great. Plus I can comprehend it better than an eccentric BB. :blush:

Yah, I thought it was just the axle that went in the Excentricker and the extermal bearings snugged up against the outside. Which lead to a vicious rumour that you had to take the bearings off to adjust the Excentricker... I think this was exposed as a lie?

Photos of new stuff since my SS was last on Vorb :D

The Hope stuff was given to me by my boss as a bonus. He knows someone at Hope so his wife picked them up when she was in the U.K. :thumbsup:

The Excentricker I got sent to the bosses son when he was in Germany a couple weeks ago and he brought it back for me. :D

Now if only I wasn't working so much and could ride more...

New levers feel much firmer than the old Mini lever

Hope Pro II SS rear hub. Even louder than the Hope Ti Glide it replaces.
Matching front wheel on the way

The Excentricker doesn't change the crank spacing at all

Glad they are black now, not gold

Alignment marks make it easy to ensure the cups are tensioned the same

I had to machine off the granny ring tabs, but I knew I would have to before I bought it. Saved some weight though

Not for the SS, but I thought I'd post them anyway. I painted my Manitou lowers to match my turquoise 575

That is sweet. To save me trawling through the whole thread, can you put up a whole bike pic?

Some whole bike pics would be grand.

I should put up a couple of mine over the weekend.

Might even build up the new one :paranoid:

I couldn't wait for the '09 stock to come in to NZ, so I got this. Haven't ridden it much yet, but I like it so far. :)

(Excuse the mudguards... a bit of an experiment to see if they can catch all the crud flung off those big wheels).
