Yes, the frame has vertical dropouts and an eccentric BB (EBB). Prior to having my SS 'cross built-up at Seven, I had been using an EBB on my Seven disc-only SS MTB for over 2-yrs without a single issue. The EBB is particularly useful when using a rear fiddling with adapters, having to worry about aligning the rear caliper with the rotor when the wheel is moved fore/aft to achieve chain tension, etc. So, even though I'm not using discs on my SS 'cross, I thought I'd have Seven add an EBB to my cross. It works just as well.

Ride Hard,
