    Sweet ENOugh

    Ordered an ENO wheel fom Harris. Finally came in and it's beautilul. I went ahead and got a 23t White Freewheel too. $$, but nice. Spent last night seting it all up on my old Giant MTB. Running a 40t front ring and had to bash the stay just a bit for clearance, but now I can flip/flop w/ the 23 free and a 17 fixed cog. Had to put a second section of chain on with a second power link, but the brakes line up pretty good in both positions.

    Works perfectly around the basement and yard. I'll be trying it out more this weekend, but since the wife is heading out of town for the weekend, I'll have to stick to terrain that my 5 and 9 year olds can ride (Oh wait, I have to do that anyway). Tow path, here I come.....

    I'll post some pics after this weekend.

    eeeee.! bashing the stay? and it all lines up correctly?
    I think it depends on the frame/BB choice. I use the ENO on my cross bike for commutes (42t/16t) and there's more than enough clearance. I also have my QR Panamint set up as a commuter with 42t/18t and there's good clearance between the ring and chainstay.

    My bikes rock. ENO is so nice and sweeeeet....

    I was hesitant, but there was a thread on it over at the iBOB list a few days ago. Didn't seem to change the alignment any. Stay went from ovalized to a little flatter ovalized. Wouldn't have done it on a newer bike (1994). Except for the tandem, this was my last geared bike (OK I do have a three speed wheel I put on my road bike sometimes).

    Road bikes have narrower chainstays, I think I can get a 48t on mine with the ENO. MTBs that were designed to take a fat rear tire are a different story. My steel deKerf will take up to a 40t, but your lucky to get a 36t on that aluminium Azonic...(with the ENO chainline). Most MTB SS'ers don't need a big ring up front - it's only us odd-ball weird tinkers that try to ride fixies off-road that want to do that... or me running that 44:22 SS ratio - just because I can...
