First Components eccentric bottom bracket

Has anyone here used one of these for chain tensioning a fixie?

P237SA is the model linky

I believe @snowflake has/had the older similar but different Forward Components EBB, unsure how it stood up to whipskids

It worked well. I think Des still has that one sitting around doing nothing. I prefer Exzentrikers now, only because they’re easier to install and adjust.

I had a Beer Components one in the past too, for a pressfit BB. I think they might be out of production now.

These First Components ones look like they’d work just fine.

Exzentriker model looks nice, it uses a pinch bolt to lock the eccentric? I like that idea better than little allen key bolts for longevity.

Does Des want to get rid of that one he isn’t using??
