Forward Components EBB [MTB & Road]

Bearing housings...

I haven’t used these EBB parts from Forward Components, but I thought I would post in case anyone out there needs an EBB solution that will work with standard BB shells. This will allow you to run a clean tensionerless chainline on SS or IGH bikes.  Their website hasn’t been updated for 12 months so it’s possible they are out of business or just lazy…=-)

Here is a German source for a similar product.

If you do try ’em drop me a line and let me know what you think.

The Forward EBBs worked like a champ.

So are the only alternatives now the Trickstuff and the Phil Wood? I’ve just done a heap of reading on these and decided that I wanted the Forward Components but unfortunately they look to be out of business now.

Any suggestions on which type you would pick for touring?
