I'm running the Exzentriker which is working good, I have no experience from the FC. It is no rocket science so if you just care about functionality I guess the FC is as good performance vice but for less money. For the Exzentriker you will need a special tool to mount the cups and that is about 15 Euros...
If you consider weight the Exzentriker (at 216g) were a bit lighter then the first FC version.
I have the Forward Components EBB. I have had it for a couple months and have yet to use it but the design looks really clean and well thought out. It also requires a special tool but FC includes it in the package.
I've used an Excentriker for getting on for two years now and it's always done the job for me - I've had no problems with slipping or creaking etc. Expensive for what it is though, even though I bought direct and got the fitting tool thrown in for free.
If I was buying now though I'd get the FC one - it seems to be a bit better engineered and probably more durable also. It wasn't available when I was buying - it was the Excentriker or nothing.
ive used the forward comp. ebb for a few months now and am loving it. i didnt tighten down the set screws enough and it slipped on me up a hill at first but since then no issues. i highly recomend it.
and it looks awesome!
