Im wondering how easy it is to change/try different ENO chainrings on this crankset?
My idea is, If it is easy and pain free i can have a few different rings for different conditions/trips (keep them in the bag)

OK, take my comment with a grain of salt since I don't have the ENO crankset but,...
Since the ENO crankset relies on a center-lockring, that means you will have to remove the crank from the BB to change the ring.
Cheaper, faster, to chang the rear cog. I have a Chris King SS hubset, and there is space on the cog carrier for 3 cogs. If you are lazy, you could leave all 3 cogs on the cassette, and just move the chain/tensioner over.
IMHO, changing the chainring is always more work than changing a cog.
Is there a reason you don't want to change the cog?
There is a good trick to change out chainrings on standard spider style cranks that most track racers know, but it wont work with the ENO crank.
Take the back half of the chainring bolt(the one with the slot) and jb weld it to back of the crank arm spider. Then you dont need a second tool, or much work to undo the allen key bolt and slide the chain ring right off. But like I said, it wont work with the ENO cranks

Sounds like work. My reason for wanting to swap chain rings: My set up is a cheap cog+spacer conversion w/ Rollen chain tensioner. The smallest cog i can use is 16T. i need larger chainring so i dont spin-out while city commuting on my pizza-cutter thin 26" tires. I have another wheelset for offroading
