    Surly rear hub vs. ENO eccentric rear: WEIGHT?

    A buddy wants to swap wheels:

    I've got a Mavic 819 laced to an ENO eccentric hub.
    He has an 819 laced to a Surly hub. He'll toss in a new tire to even the deal.

    My recent frame upgrade to horizontal drops means I don't need the eccentric tensioner (althought I've never had slippage over several months use).

    I'm considering the simplicity of the Surly hub but am wondering about the weight penalty.

    QUESTION: What is the weight difference between the Surly and the ENO eccentric?

    I've searched the net without much success for reported weights.

    Thanks in advance.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    I've had both. Neither is light but they aren't total boat anchors either. Never actually weighted them, but I built both from scratch so they were free of rim and spokes. From my "holding them in my hand" experience I'd say they are pretty similar in weight and I wouldn't worry about it.

    Just weighted them fresh out of the box/bag:

    Surly fix/free 135mm = 324 grams

    ENO Ecc Fix/Free 135mm = 330 grams

    So you'll have a weight advantage on the hub of 6 whole grams :-)
