    Rear wheel suggestions...

    Hello fellow SSers,

    the time has come to replace the rear wheel of my SS, I ride a Surly 1x1 (no disc tabs) and i've worn out a converted 9spd wheel. I am looking to get something very durable non disc..

    I am considering the White Industries ENO, and i've looked at the Phil Woods... Any other suggestions? I know weak link is the freewheel, does it make sense to get a mid-level wheel w/ a high-end freewheel?

    Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

    The eno hub and freewheel are both kickass. I would suggest you at least get the freewheel as nothing else even comes close. The hub is a more of a discretionary thing as budget allows. Phils are spendy but undoubtedly some of the nicest out there.

    A hearty "Here, here" on the White Industries stuff. The freewheel is amazing, Soooo smooth and quick engaging. I also think that the ENO hub is great, I've used them (both eccentric and non) for 3 years on a few of my bikes and not even a little bit of trouble. Lightweight, bling, and last forever. The only negative is that it can take a while for them ship sometimes, but it's worth it. If you get a new rim just remember that you don't want an offset (non-centered) spoke placement. Velocity have been my favorites........

    While I own 3 White Industries hubs ( ) but I'm going to suggest a Surly flip/flop hub. I had a Surly hub prior to my White Ind stuff and it was great, plus it won't break the bank and it will last for a long time. Consider the Surly before you drop the coin on Phil or something..
