Regards eccentric BB... looks an expensive addition. Is this just one type of design https://youtu.be/yWmxxeGn00A and using eccentric: would it mean carrying of extra tools for puncture duties (wheel removal/slackening chain/angle)... :???:

I dont mind a sliding dropout, or a swinging one like on a salsa. Never had an ebb so cant comment. The sliders and swingers (not that sort)...

If you decide to convert a non-SS frame I have a (brand new) spare tensioner you can have for postage. I’m not likely to use it as my Stooge has an EBB.
