    KM chainline question

    I have a 2011 KM that was bought complete. It has a truvativ firex crank and shimano freewheel on surly new hubs. I want to replace the freewheel with a WI Eno freewheel but was wondering if anyone knows if it will throw off my chainline? Assuming that a complete build from Surly has a perfect chainline, is anything going to change by just replacing a freewheel? Thanks guys

    I've run an ENO on a 2011 and 2012 KM frame w/ surly hubs, worked perfectly on both.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    Thanks for the help guys. I installed mine and everything seems fine to me. Question though.....what type of chain are you running?

    KMC Z610HX works good for me, with 3/32 ss chainring and WI freewheel.

    IIRC, I'm running a SRAM PC-951 currently. Same chainring setup as lpt1.
