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)

Never heard of it. More info?

*edit - Are you sure you don't mean a Phil Wood? White Industries doesn't make a BB, as far as I know.

Say what? Is it an eccentric BB that fits in a regular shell or like the kind you find on tandems?

Make it a no-thread one as well... A YST-Phil-ENO adjustable chainline eccentric nothread sealed superBB. Well'll call it BFSSFGACENSBB

sorry




Ok, I edit. Adjustable chainline means left-to-right adjustability, not the eccentric chain tensioning deal.

yea, they stopped making them a loooong time ago. 6903 bearings.
I'm pretty sure it had a Ti spindle too. What cranks are you running?
I can't remember, but I think a lot of those MTB BBs at that time only came with super long spindles (113+mm), though I'm wrong a lot.

Those look nice, like a classier version of this:

Danscomp Euro BB

The Danscomp one has a 120mm (!!!) spindle.
