answering with questions

Not all frames are the same. you might start by contacting the person (or company) who made yours. if you can't do that, at least tell us what your frame is make of....aluminum, steel, or Ti. The configuration of the sets may also differ (do they run radially into the shell or tangentially (shell pinches the BB)). Knowing this basic info may lead to better suggestions from this forum.

Thanks. It's a steel Vulture frame. I sent an e-mail to Wade and am waiting to hear back. The bolts are set screws, so they run radially....not pinch bolt.

Thanks again.

I have never seen a hard number.

Make them "snug". More than finger tight. Less than leaning hard on the wrench. It does not take a lot of force to hold the EBB in place.

Can someone tell me what the torque should be for EBB set screws? I can't seem to find the information anywhere on the internet.

Thank you. :)
Niner One-nine calls for 55in. lbs. it is set-screw type, aluminum, (scandium to be exact)
