    New question here. Converting Ibis Silk-Ti to Singlespeed

    I am going to convert my Ibis Silk Ti to a singlespeed. Do I need to use a tensioner or can use a rear wheel built around an ENO hub.

    You can go either way, but the ENO hub is cleaner.

    go with the ENO eccentric on such a fine ride. I have a soft tail with the ENO and it works like a charm.
    post a pic when it's all done. that is one of those bikes i have always lusted after. i have seen a few on the trails, and they are nice.

    I agree

    ENOize it. On that frame you don't need a fake derailleur. People put those on GTs.

    I have an eno in my hand (well my lap right now, keyboard in my hand) and it's the most beautiful thing ever. I spent my rim and spokes money on it so fondling will have to do for now !

    Go for one - super nice and lighter than a chris king classic (also very nice to fondle while awaiting remaining wheel).
