    Need the answer?

    I have a few questions?

    1. Should one get a real SS crank (ie "eno") verus 3 ring with outer rings removed?

    2.Does any one make a water bottle cage that will fit a Nalgane bottle (11 and half inches diameter?

    3. Hot s 2.2 good for ss?

    4. How would i reduce the traval of a marrzochi exr pro (coil) form 105mm to 85mm to work better on my Surly 1x1?

    5. Eno freewheel that good or just bling?

    6. Running disc hydro's on a surly 1x1 it can be done but what to do about the cable stops and fitting the hose to the rear.

    7. Should I even run dics?

    Thats all I Have in my head for now, thanks to any one with answer

    i'll jump in on what i can, don't wanna leave you completely hanging. on the cranks i don't think i makes a differance with all the SS specific rings on the market. the hot s tires are not bad.i've yet to hear anything bad about the eno freewheel, if i had the cash i'd pop for the trials one. if it's not really wet where you are then don't bother with discs.

    I got some answers

    1. Should one get a real SS crank (ie "eno") verus 3 ring with outer rings removed?

    Either or. Or just buy a SS specific rampless ring.

    2.Does any one make a water bottle cage that will fit a Nalgane bottle (11 and half inches diameter? Not that i know of.

    3. Hot s 2.2 good for ss? Yes


    5. Eno freewheel that good or just bling? It IS that GOOD.

    7. Should I even run dics? Its up to you. There's advantages and disadvantages.

    No. Not even good with gears for that matter. Stay away from Michelin products. Unless you like to crash and otherwise love having a perfectly nice ride ruined by a crappy product. Heck, I even managed to flat a Michelin tire on the road...

    Don't know, ask Marzocchi.

    I zip-tied mine... but then my bike looks like it's been picked off the trash after only a year of (ab)use. The paint on the Surlys doesn't hold that well anyway.

    If you have them by no means yes. My Hayes have been set-and-forget.

    1. No. Any stiff crank set will do. As someone else mentioned, get a non ramped ring.

    2. No idea. Why? Just get a Camelbak if you want to carry more water.

    3. Never ridden them. I'm a big fan of large volume tires (2.3-2.4)

    4. Head over to the Shock Forum and ask this question.

    5. Good thing but there's no need if you're riding a bike with horizontal drop outs (like a 1x1). The purpose of the the ENO is to tension the chain in a bike with vertical DO's.

    6. Yes. Use zip ties to hold it in place. Fitting the hose to the rear? Like any other caliper set up.

    7. Personal preference. I run disc because my rim brakes don't work so hot in the winter when they're wet.

    Sorry Ken,
    He was asking about the freewheel not the hub.

    The ENO freewheel is really good: quicker engagement, lower maintenance, longer life. I think it is definitely worth it.

    D'oh! I'm not a smart man. The good lord chose not to bless me with good looks, athletic ability or a fully functioning brain.


    Sorry about that.

    Heck, you can touch up a Surly with a Sharpee or White-Out, depending on the color.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Hmmh, maybe. I'm ashamed to post a picture, people would start calling the social services for a maltreated bike.

    It has some deep scratches due to me wiping out. Generally the finish has just become dull, mostly where things rub. Surly does warn about that on their website, and besides I couldn't care less I'm here to ride not stare at it

    You're right though, only the finish looks like crap, there is no chip only a few scratches I can account for (crashes). Rocks keep hitting the tubes and now that you mention it I don't see the effects of that.
