    Klein Adroit SS questions

    I've got a 95 1/2 Klein Adroit just begging to be SS'd.
    I was thinking of using an ENO hub but I have seen talk on the board that some combos don't require a tesnioner (or ENO).


    Anyone have any experience with this. All input is greatly appreciated.
    BTW, the Adroit has rear facing dropouts.

    TIA

    Like this?

    Just put in a SS wheel (check SS FAQ) with the gear combo you want to run, size the chain, correct the chainline and ride. More in the SS FAQ.

    My bad I should check the FAQ's before posting.

    Thanks.

    I've been abusing an Attitude as a Fixie for a while now. Those "micro drops" give you a few mm of adjustment. You just might have to compromise a tooth or two to get in that range.

    Sorry, forgot that you have "micro dropouts"

    which don't have as much room to move as the earlier Klein dropouts.

    SSconvert should help you find some ratios and your variable chainstay length should still allow you some choices.

    Post some pictures.

    Nice...

    ...snowflake wheels and snowflakes. Cool (both figuratively and literally).
    Are those the triple-flange "pineapple" hubs from the mid-90's?
