    Smile ENO cranks

    Just forwarding a message from Lynette at White Industries concerning a problemo I had today.......

    "Please do NOT use loctite on your ENO crank lockring, but anti-seize"...

    Loctite caused a thread-stripping problem for me whilst removing the lockring to change chainrings. (That's a mouthful!) Major major galling occured....epic galling!

    The "blue stuff" kept that little green ring on there just dandy, but removing it today was absolutely dreadful! Obviously not the fault of WI, but.....of course!......Lynette will take care of you, no matter what!

    I am absolutely impressed with the customer service provided by White Industries! Can I have a "second", again?? Hee.

    I have an ENO crank and I was wondering if the chainring should go on to the spline dry or with grease? The first time I took the chainring off it appeared to be dry. So I am assuming it goes back on that way.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Dry!

    Clean the splines thoroughly, put the ring on there dry, and ANTI-SEIZE the locking ring.

    I'm reserving the blue Loctite for the vibration-riddled bolts on my KLR650. And of course the improper use of BB lockrings on two of three fixie bikes.

    yeah, it's a dumb reason but, that's why i don't sport any of their products.

    love me my black components.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Ano.

    Papa,

    I think you'll soon be in for a surprise! Lynette actually spoke the "ano" word to me today......shhhhhh!! Secret.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well Huh??

    Sorry, but you won't use ENO's just cause they don't come in "black"?? I agree on the "dumb reasoning".

    You're missing out on one of my favorite bicycling components! I have 'em on four bikes now.

    The SRAM PC7-X chains don't quite know how to deal with 'em....they're perhaps told at the factory things like tight/loose rotations and such....not so with ENO!

    well i'm also kind of partial to the older cooks cranks i have quite the horde of those going on. and i don't like the idea of having to use eno specific chainrings. as soon as more options are available though i'm sure i'll start dabbling with them. its inevitable.

    Smile Eno

    Light/stiff/cheap....well. From my experience, perfectly concentric chainrings! Muy importante on a SS or fixie. The chain remains exactly tensioned throughout rotation.

    Pretty green (or shiny aluminium) chainrings. The most fantastic customer service I've experienced in more than twenty years of mountain biking. Lynette (ahhhhh!). Stiff....Lynette. (sorry!).....Lynette.

    Need I go on?

    Spin, I'll send you a pair to try out. You'll love 'em, or send 'em back. No wucking furries, mate!

    Deal? Make sure and remember to send 'em back though! 32/34/38 tooth...your preference.

    Love ya man!

    (psssttt... forgot to mention they only come in "square taper"....as God and Jacque Phelan and Charlie Cunningham and Richard Cunningham and Gary Fisher and Charlie Kelly and Tom Ritchey intended 'em to be! Disc brakes and Octalink shiate just plain won't work in the long run....)

    Wow, that's quite an offer. Perfectly matched with a real in-your-face diss of my hydraulic disc brakes. What a bastard! A bloody brilliant bastard, but a bastard all the same!

    You're gonna get me in trouble with those cranks, I just know it.

    Cool-blue Rhythm dicks breaks

    I'll have to retract anything I've posted concerning my hatred of disc brakes!

    If they are on YOUR bike, disc brakes are a wonderful/miraculous thing....if on MINE, they just plain suck. JMHO.

    I live in Aridzona, and have no use for those silly things. Long live the V's!! Hee.

    I have some black Eno arms

    I had to get the job done in Indianapolis (I'm in KY). Looks great and I can't wait for my Boone ring to get here! Sorry no pics yet.

    c'mon, one can't be too picky. 10 years from now it will be back to pink, white, and yellow housing and mind control brakes will be the norm.

    You'd have been proud of me this weekend, mate. Fully rigid, 32/20 gearing, v-brakes, Midge bars. I was able to coast, though.

    Having spent the last 4 days riding in Arizona, I have a few observations to make...
    1. Disc brakes still stop better, perform better, than v-brakes.
    2. Suspension forks allow a rider to ride at a higher level over a rigid fork.
    3. Flagstaff trails are incredible!
    4. LOTS of SSers in Flagstaff.
    5. 29er SSs are one of the best ways to ride AZ.
    6. Black components look better for longer than silvery ones that used to be shiny.
    7. Sedona has lots of crystal-lovin'-hippies.
    8. The girl who cut my hair in Sedona, who was from Flagstaff, turned us on to a GREAT sushi place in Flagstaff, that we assaulted post ride. Nice!
    9. Rim brakes are for road bikes.

    I toataly disagree with the responsivness of WI. I broke 2 of their chainrings, they blamed it on me and have not done anything for me. They also said that they were going to cut some stronger rings, but never did....or at least havn't sent me any. I had to order a Boone ring(which I don't mind cause they are phat) in order to use the cranks, and because thier stupid spline pattern for the spiderless does not match any other one on the market...So you can say whatever you want, but I havn't been able to use my ENO's for the last 6-8mounths because of thier GREAT customer service....

    Strange. They offer the eccentric hub in black. Doesn't make much sense that they won't do a crankset in black ano.
