    WI eno disc hub or different hub?

    I was wondering if you guys had any advice on which way i should go building a new rear rim. I have a mavic819 rim and was going to build it with the WI eno disc rear hub and WI freewheel, but have been considering using a different hub and a chain tensioner. I have a c-dale f4 gone SS and want to build a wheel dedicated to SS. I was also considering using a notubes ztr 355 rim but have the 819 sitting around. Anyone have any ideas?

    i use a ENO w/stans rim on my cannondale F29er. always works perfect, no problems. tubeless is the way to go.

    how do you like the adjustable hub? does it keep good chain tension?

    works great. never had any slipage problems. adjusting the brake caliper can be a pain until you get it down. overall, i think it's a good system.

    Eno

    I have the White Industries eccentric hub on my Mamasita. I have put about 3000 miles on it without a single problem. It is really easy to adjust the chain tension, And the brake adjustment isn't that big of a deal. The freewheel has really fast engagement. If I had to say anything negative about the hub is that it is not the lightest hub out there, And if you need to change gearing it could be expensive. But neither one of those should be a deal breaker. It is a great hub.

    Agree, not the lightest, but chain tension is great! White makes good stuff - all of it. As was stated in a previous post, can be expensive if you are switching gearing often.

    was thinking about getting that trials 18t extra weight but it has 72points of engagement, 18 is what i really like to ride but didn't know if the engagement points were worth the extra weight. any opinions?

    WI Eno and WI Trials 18T

    krismac: Both the WI Eno hub and the Trials 18T are seen in the video. You mention the Eno Disc but there are two versions often confused, the ENO Disc and the ENO Eric's Eccentric ENO Disc. The one in the video is ENO disc due to track drops: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhWxFEN1b6k

    Oh, and I've both the 18T Trials and the 18T red and the 16T blue. The 18T is just a machined bad-ass sounding freewheel. People won't miss ya, you'll be heard coming up on their left for sure.

    I have the ENO with Mavic 819 rim. I have had zero problems with either. If it were me I would not buy the Stans, the 819 is a great rim in my opinion. Save yourself some $$$.

    "eric eno" is eccentric, so the axle ends have an offset to adjust chain tension.

    "non-eric eno" is NON-eccentric...meaning that is has a regular bolt on hub.

    [steps out of lurking shadows]

    Can the WI ENO Eccentric DISC hub only be ran as a free wheel? Their website says free wheel compatible... with the disc mount on the left side, it is unlike the flip/flop.

    Wondering for two reasons:
    1. If it is not changeable, there is no way for someone to have a fixed gear AND disc brakes on the rear (why one would want that is another story); and
    2. I guess I didn't/don't understand and have in my possession a 650b wheel set with said rear hub that I had wanted to put on my current MTB frame commuter. Already have a single-speed surly tensioner on there. Wanted the cleanliness of the ENO.

    Might have a wheel set for sale...

    Thanks.

    I'm looking to buy a White eno hub laced to a 26" rim (non-disc) if anyone has the beat on one. PM if you have any info. Thanks.
