We spotted the new Wheels Manufacturing eccentric bottom bracket in prototype form this summer, and now it’s official. The precision milled part will fit BB30 and PFBB30 frames, converting any into a singlespeed bike.
The Enduro ABEC5 angular contact bearings fit a 24mm spindle, with versions for Shimano definitely and SRAM GXP. The outer pieces are machined from aluminum and use steel bolts to snug it into the frame and hold position. It’ll fit both 68mm and 73mm BB shells.
Around $125 retail, price will be finalized and production started for November delivery. More pics below…
Unlike some other brands’ EBBs, Wheels says all of their bottom brackets work on carbon frames. We just wouldn’t over tighten this one!
It includes outer bearing seals, spacers and a wave washer. Weight without those little bits is just 166g, not much more than a good threaded BSA bottom bracket.
Loosely related and in the same booth space was Enduro Bearings, which had some nifty new tools.
