    New question here. Home-made Eccentric Hubs

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if any of you had tried to build an eccentric ss hub starting from some cheap hub (Surly 1x1 like) ?

    Thanks !

    check out www.angryasian.com for plans for an eccentric axel for the Paul WORD hub. Click on the 'angry stuff' link. Could something like this be made for other hubs?

    Thanks for the link, that's more or less what I was thinking of.

    Well, Drevil beat me to my link. The Shimano axle mode has been working fine for over a year, no slipping.

    I've also done this with a solid 10mm axle, by removing the axle threads around the dropout, pretty much the way Sheldon Brown does. That will work with the Surly hub too. You get ~2mm of adjustment, unless you file into the axle a bit, which is OK. It gives you enough room to use several chain ring/cog ratios.

    The Pauls hub by design can have about 2mm of adjustment. The axle ends are flat, and the bolt washer is the part that has a neck that sits in the dropout. If you replace the washers with flat ones (or machined ones that don't have the neck) then only the M6 bolt sits in the dropout, so you have some adjustment. I have this setup on an Ibis with the Pauls disc adapter, works great. I'm not sure the AngryAxle ever got made, but you don't really need it with a Pauls Hub.



    Cheers,

    Tom
