I'm currently using a Forward Components eccentric bottom bracket on my singlespeed Generation. I'm using an LX Hollowtech 11 crankset which came with it from Oz. It's not the prettiest crankset around, so I'd lik,e to get something nice. It needs to be compatible with Hollowtech 11 to work with the BB. Is this the same as X-type? or anything else?
I was thinking of some singlespeed Middleburns. Would they work? Any other nice cranks available in HT11?

think it's as HT2

some good tips here:

how come road EBBs require no spacers? what if the shell is 73mm? also, bit worried reading that Truvativ require no spacers as I fitted a Truvativ Blaze a while back with 3 spacers as per HT2 and RF to a frame with a 68mm shell... worked though!

is not just that mtb BB were changed to compensate for e-type mech

iirc it was only 2 spacers when ht2 came out
