    NS ECCENTRIC single speed?

    Hey all, I'm trying to determine if the NS eccentric can run as a single speed? Any ideas?
    Cheers

    I don't see any way that it would easily work with a singlespeed drivetrain. you would need some sort of chain tensioner.

    I have one. It's my geared bike. The dropouts are vertical with no adjustment and there is no eccentric BB so you would have to run a tensioner or I did see someone on the trail with the 27.5/26" one magic geared at 34:19

    Remember to get the eno freewheel too!
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I have a few. Matching can be done as well. I can get my hands on a matching ENO front if you'd like.

    I have a 2016 as my main bike. Set up single speed with 26" wheels. Trialtech tensioner and plenty of abuse. Great frame. Sorry to see they went to 29 with them.
