I have to build a new wheel from scratch and are thinking of one of these hubs. Any feedback esp as to how large a difference between cogs i can look to use,reliability issues e.t.c would be appreciated,

hey man. dunno how to spell it, but . . . . ko-nee-she-wa.

anyway, i am going to be using an ENO eccentric as a fix this season. presently they are back ordered, my wheel guru tells me. all reports i have on them are from mt biking singlespeeders and they all rave about them. the hub is a jewel-like piece, simple in design. not much to go wrong, really. i will do a post on my cool new vitus /ENO / fix when i get it done and get on the the road. i say just go for it, if you have a nice frame you wish to use.

i've heard great things over on the singlespeed forum on about it.

got one on order too. going on my old road frame which has vert dropouts. since i'd have had to buy a fixed wheel for it anyhow, i figured go this way, and not have to f*ck around trying to get tension right with the verts.

go for it! everything i've heard about it is great!
