    Caad 5 Eno

    I recently converted an old Caad 5 hardtail to a single-speed with an Eno hub. The drive side hub bolt doesn't seem to have enough purchase power, as no matter how hard I tighten the bolt, the wheel will move forward in the drop out as soon as I put a little power down. The wheel won't pull completely out of the drop out, but instead will move forward just slightly and then stay there. The bike is plenty ride-able, but when the wheel moves forward, my chain becomes a little slack. The left bolt seems fine.

    Is there anyone out there that has had this same problem? If so how did you fix it? I'm thinking about roughing up, or putting some marks into the d. hanger.

    I can't see it moving forward that much. Why don't you just tighten the eno hub down in that forward position? Then you can snug up the chain, and "Bobs your Uncle".
