I was wondering if anyone has any experience with/recommendations for fixed gear hubs for use with the Chainglider. I currently have the 42-tooth Chainglider on a bike with a Surly fixed gear hub, and I feel like it rubs more than it should (specifically the drive-side spokes rub the innermost part of the Chainglider). I do understand there will always be some contact (and maybe some of this is because the 42t version was build for the Rohloff hub?) Anyway, I'm building up a new bike anyway, so I was wondering if I could minimize friction with a different hub.

Lube lube lube lube lube lube. Put a lot of lube in the little hole
The back of my chainglider fell off so I know it isnt rubbing my spokes, and there is still just as much drag/noise. Just lube the crap out of it or take it off, there aren't many other choices. Mine isn't terrible, but noticable.
