Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Race Face Adjustable BB

I know Phil Wood makes an adjustable BB but I was curious about this Race Face one I found as its cheaper and doesn't require any special tools. Has anyone had any experience with it? How much adjustment does it give?

Quote from Speedgoat website:
"We love adjustable chainline bottom-brackets. In fact, we tend to think they're necessary when truly dialing in a bike--making sure it not only shifts well, but also lets you backpedal through technical terrain, and maximize your chain's life. Though the taper is too abrupt to work with Campy and some other cranksets, this is on our short list for favorite bottom-brackets."

The 'taper is too abrupt to work with Campy some other cranksets' part worries me somewhat but I generally use shimano and I imagine that would be ok.
