    Who's using an ENO freewheel?

    Curious to see if anybody is running one of these freewheels? Worth the cash or not?

    yep.

    they are awesome. pricey, but rebuildable. get one, you'll never go back.

    These nice freewheels are sealed shut/tight with no comprimise of ever getting sand in it...like my old Shimano and ACS wheels, ridding in the sandy areas of Kettle Moraine and later hearing the sand grinding inside. UGH!

    The sooper coolest thing about the freewheels from White Ind. is that they are rebuildable. Ware the teeth to the gums, and you can just slap a new set of teeth on it.

    White Ind. is a badass company, thinking way ahead, and that my friends, is good. As good as a freshly made salsa for your tacos and sopapillas.

    I didn't realize you could change the number of teeth. That is really cool. Have you done this yet? How much to replacement cogs cost?

    I don't know how much they are, but yes, it is rebuildable, sealed, and made in the USA, that's why the price is not cheap. Not cheap means it will last you a while, unless we get hit by a meteor.

    Me

    Yes, they are worth the cash [IMHO]. Adding the WI sealed freewheel and a sealed King headset to my lowly SISS have made all things right in this world (well all things with me anyway).

    i built up an ENO hub with an ENO freewheel. it seemed like the right thing to do. like everyone else has said, it is a quality piece. i was getting a little tired of crunchy sounding Shimano and ACS freewheels so the (sealed) ENO seems like just the ticket! so far so good...
    eddie would go.

    More Questions for ENO Users

    How long have you been riding your ENO?

    Have you needed to rebuild it yet?

    Based on your experience with BMX cogs, how long could you ride one bbefore replacing it and how does that compare with your ENO experience?

    How much to they cost?

    Can you run a standard free hub body with an ENO, or are you limited to a specific cog?

    Thanks,

    Ken

    yes

    well, just got it this and have yet to ride it. but seems nice. other folks in my area ride with them. much nicer than the cheap BMX freewheels. if you have a nice bike, go for it. i do wish that WI had made the eccentric hub with a freehub on one side, though. like the chris kings.
    Only boring people get bored.

    that's because the ENO freewheel is made out of cheese. Swiss cheese is a natural sealant. The cheese is farmed out in Switzerland, and tapped with a spigot and bucket like you would a maple tree for maple tree syrup. It is quite the task, but it is what keeps on giving, which gives us all Swiss Cheese Quesadillas and ENO flavored freewheels.
