BEER Components will be the official eccentric of choice for Squid Bikes. SQUID Bikes is a new Fame company coming at you live and direct from Sacramento, CA. The frames are 7000 series aluminium, fabricated, and welded here locally by Ventana Mountain bikes. These frames are stout, feature a PF30 BB shell, and can be ordered in Cantilever or Disc versions.
Eccentrics for BB30 of PF30 shells will only be available in black for the time being. Black was the most requested color by far so to better serve the general population black is it.
- BB30 Eccentric – Black
Curtis Inglis (Retrotec) is responsible for creating this fine frame, but it doesn’t stop there. Checkout the rest of the components. I’m feeling a bit on ENVE over those wheels. Man this ride is awesome!
“Here is the Retrotec with the now installed PF30 Beer installed. I’m sooo stoked Curtis let me know about your option!
Thanks for a great alternative!!”
I’m back to shipping your eccentrics. Also, I have more time at home to do fun things like add your customer photos to the site once again. Send me a picture of your bike and any story you want to associate with it. I’ll get it posted. Email to beercomponents @ gmail.com
After some serious reconsideration, we have decided to release the eccentrics for both BB30 and PF30 in Black. The stock colors based on popularity and demand will be red and black for the foreseeable future. Blue did ok, but the demand was not that high. Purple did ok too, and this may come back around as it was surprisingly more popular than blue. All other colors like green, orange, yellow…could be offered on the chance that someone is placing a large order for a team. So, enjoy the Red or Black!
The new Eccentric for Press Fit 30 frames are rolling in next week. I received a few sample units ahead of time for testing and so far so good. The acceptance of certain cranks with 30mm diameter spindles is the BIG DEAL behind these new eccentrics.
This eccentric is designed to work with ROTOR 3D+ , e*Thirteen XCX-SS , FSA K-Force Light BB386 Road , FSA K-Force Compact MTB , FSA SL-K Light BB386 , FSA SL-K Compact Compact MTB , and all 24mm diameter spindle cranks.
If your 30mm spindle crank is not on the list above then it will not work with this eccentric. Sorry.
Currently the Salsa Cross bike is setup with the ROTOR 3D+ cranks. Next, the bike will be tested with the eccentric using the 24mm reduction shims. After that, the bike will be setup with the e*Thirteen XCX SS cranks. Mainly the biggest hurdle is deciding how many of each shim is required to get all cranks to work correctly and make it a universal solution for all.
Work has progressed on an eccentric for Press Fit 30 frames. I finally got a my rolling test bench for these eccentrics completed and though you might care to see it. It’s a 2012 Salsa Chili Con Crosso. The Con Crosso comes with horizontal track drops so that it can go into SS mode immediately, but I wanted/needed a frame that was PF30 (Press Fit 30) for testing purposes. After looking all other choices that are available for purchase I decided the con crosso would provide the most amount of options for all kinds of crazy setups
The Con Crosso is offered in Black with stylish blue graphics and anodized highlights like the seatpost binder and the headset cap. Typically Salas’s have been offered in very organic colors and decorated with the famous chilli pepper logo. This year they ventured away from that and it drew me in more.
Comfort is abundant on the Con Crosso. The ride is smooth and reliable. The 1.5″ tapered head tube provides a very reassuring feeling in the corners, while the flattened top tube provides a nice comfy feel on the run up. The rear triangle is designed with flattened tubing to provide lateral rigidity , and the acceleration of the bike feels fantastic. Weight wise I would say the bike is light, not super light, but the reliability of the ride makes up for it. If you are the kind of rider that is totally focused on how hard and fast YOU can make the bike go, then this is a great ride.
So back to the PF30 eccentric, yeah i bought this frame for testing eccentrics for PF30 frames. I had 10 pairs cut and have been testing them with friends and such. The initial ride on the eccentric felt fine. I liked it. It works. BUT, it just isn’t fancy enough for me. Back to the drawing board.
But you won’t get shocked! Go for it man. I hope you find one of the three colors agreeable with your color scheme.
JT Fountain, Pro Single Speeder, raced to 2nd place on January 4th 2012 in the USA cyclocross nationals . His bike features and EBB30, and BEER components has been proud to support him all year long. To even be a contender takes a lot of dedication and time. BEER components salutes this fine performance. Thank you JT for choosing to tension your chain with an EBB30.
Here is a great plug on the eccentric for BB30 frames.
