    What hubs are you running?

    What's your rear hub and is it SS specific? Is it a freehub or do you have a freewheel?

    I run a Chris King SS disc hub on one bike (freehub) and a Paul non-disc hub (freewheel) on the other. I have the Paul mated up to a White Industries freewheel.

    My road singlespeed has Pauls hubs with WI freewheel too,

    MTB has hope trials hubs.

    Really like the hope for changing cogs etc. but the Pauls hubs are so damn smooooth.

    10 Year old Shimano Deore Hubs. Serviced once and still running strong. Probably been on 3 bikes by now. Never replaced the freehub, just cleaned and regreased the bearings, races and cones. Gonna have to do something soon though because the rear rim is starting to wear out.

    Wow lots of people with Paul hubs here...I have the Paul word disc too with WI trials but haven't spent much time on it. Looks awesome in the stand though!

    What hubs are you running?

    Chris King non-disc SS-specific. Fun Bolts on track ends. King, Niner, or Boone cog depending on what I need for gearing.

    Bike 1: White Industries Eno disc Eccentric with ACS freewheel. Bike has vertical dropouts.

    Bike 2: White Industries Eno Eccentric with ACS freewheel. Bike has vertical dropouts.

    Bike 3: Hope Pro2 disc hub with Surly cog and spacers. Bike has EBB.

    I know nobody asked about the dropouts or BB, but it explains why I'm using what I'm using.

    What do you like better (eccentric hun or ebb) and which requires less maintenance? Also how do your freewheels compare?

    On my SS I run stock Bontrager Duster/Rythm Comp hubs (3 pawl, 24 tooth). I run 3 sets of Chris King hubs and one set of Stan's 3.30's on my geared bikes.

    I really like the eccentric hubs. They are beautifully made and have great bearings. On the downside, they take a bit of effort to set up with disc brakes, I use the White Industries caliper mount which isn't suitable for all brake mounts out there. For v-brake use, they're cool.

    The EBB is a pinch bolt type (Rocky Mountain Hammer 29 for the record) and doesn't give me any grief. It doesn't slip or groan or creak or sing Christian Metal so I'm happy with that.

    I can't say I prefer one over the other, they both just work.

    The ACS freewheels are okay. Both of mine are from a batch that had a clunk, not sure if they fixed it since. When I replace them, it will be with White Industries freewheels which are regarded as The Official Best.

    What's your setup?

    I have the Stan's 3.30 hubs that came with my Stan's wheels. the rear hub is not SS specific but I have put a cassette on it at one time. I like having the option of putting a rear mech on my wheel just in case, but I have only done that twice and it just has spacers and a Singleworks 20t cog the rest of the time. I also replaced the end caps on the hub with 10mm rear and 9mm front caps and replaced the qr skewers with Hadley thru-bolts. very secure!

    pain old xt hub on one wheel (currently waiting for a new rim to be delivered today) currently using a sun ringle black flag wheel i picked up on closeout after i broke my rim. I may be looking for a ss specific hub in the future.

    (2 bikes // 4 wheel-sets.)
    --------------------------
    1) Hope SS-Trials & Surly cogs.

    2) Hadley w/ spacers.

    3) DMR 6-pawl w/ spacers.

    4) Bonty/Formula w/ spacers.
    The best is the one you want to ride most often..
