    Cassette ENO?

    I can't find any evidence that this exists. I want an ENO so I can ditch the singleator, but I'm not too crazy about $70 freewheels because I've already got about 4 different Surly cogs. If White came out with an eccentric cassette SS hub, I'd love it. I've seen several casette SS hubs, but none that are eccentric; did I miss something?

    I'm an idiot. What I said before was pretty not smart.
    The main advantage of a cassette hub is the that bearing spacing for the axle can be held pretty wide, while increasing the number of gears, while they sit inboard of a freewheel. But, this means that the bearings must sit inside the diameter of the cassette body which reduces the amount of room available for an eccentric axle. The problem could be solved, but it would mean starting from scratch. Most SS cassette hubs out there are simply adaptations of their geared counterparts.
    I think its possible, but it hasn't been done yet.

    Does not exist.

    You do not have to use an ENO FW on a ENO ecct. hub.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
