This is my first non derailleur bike and its a bit of a learning curve on the new bits. At least I’ve got a working bike again.

It has a large tube size.

Once the chain is adjusted to correct tension,tighten the wedges but don’t overtighten the wedge bolt,5Nm is enough ie;two fingers bogtom pressure on a standard sized allen key or you run the risk of distorting the EBB housing in the frame.


This eccentric is 68mm long and It is slightly smaller in diameter than the “Eccentric Bottom Bracket Insert Taiwanese” also sold on this site which was a fraction too wide for my bike. Or the other which is what I did cannondale to change both drive chain rings by one tooth down 30 You may not post new threads.

The allen key goes into the complete end of the cylinder and as it’s tightened draws the wedge bgacket creating a friction fit in the bottom bracket. I gave the head of the allen key a couple of taps with a tack hammer but I can’t seem to budge anything.

Now’s the time to strip it,clean,regrease and reassemble the Eccentric BB,so you know it’s done correctly for next time. Before I break something I thought I’d better check my understanding of the setup; to me it looks like the eccentric is basically a cylinder with a diagonal slice off one side.

Once re-greased and correctly adjusted, insert M5 bolt from the correct side and tighten with 4mm Hex key as per instructions.
