View Full Version : ENO Hub

Anyone riding on a White Brothers ENO hub? I am planning on converting my Fat Chance Yo Eddy to a SS so I am looking at the options.
Also, for anyone running a 32 front chainring what are you happy with for the freewheel? 16, 18 etc. Typical terrain includes Carlisle, Lowell Dracut and Groton Woods.

I am not sure what that terrain is like, but I run a 33:19 in and around Lebanon, NH. That is kind of between 18 and 19 with a 32 tooth ring. If you can, your best bet is to try a couple of different ratios with a canverted cassette hub before taking the eno plunge.

I just got an ENO hub. I have 3 rides on it so far & no problems, I'll keep you posted.

i have been using an ENO hub for a while now. it works great!
i suggest you try to setup the gearing so the hub is forward of the axle. that way you just push down on the bike to tension the chain. it helps alot if you are changing a flat on the trail.
so basically use a chain/ring combo with a slightly shorter chainstay length than your bike, if possible. you can play with that with some cogs and piece of chain.
