    which freewheel?

    I'm thinking of buying a new wheel with an eno hub for my stumpjumper singlespeed. Do you think it is worth the extra bucks to get a white industries freewheel, or should i cheap out and get something like an AC or shimano.

    Is it worth buying the eno freewheel? it is 70 bucks more.

    If you know what gear you want to run, then yes, it is worth it. I blow out ACS and Shimano F/Ws three to four times a year if I'm riding alot. WI freewheels are durable and serviceable. One could argue that shimano freewheels are serviceable as well, but why waste your time when they are so cheap?

    Once you know what size you need, there is only ENO.

    I went through 6-7 of the cheap FWs in 3 years. Then I bought an ENO ~4 years ago. Sill using it with one re-pack of the bearing.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
