White Industries Freewheel SSCX Application Questions
Super long, super sad story made super short.
Lack of luck and skills has left me with n - 1 bikes, and I'm trying to make it right by salvaging what I can and building a SSCX ride for the upcoming Fall season.
I'd like to invest in a couple of nice eBay special White Industries freewheels to complete the new build.
However, the ONLY available crankset in the parts bin is an 11-speed Campy 135mm BCD, new style, which can only fit proprietary 11-speed rings (which I have.)
The WI freewheels are listed as 8 speed - 3/32".
I only have 10 speed and 11 speed KMC and Campy chains. Pin width differential on the 10 speed v. 8 speed is 1mm and the 11 speed is obviously even more.
1) Has anyone run a WI freewheel with a 10/11 speed chain? Will I just destroy the chain in a few races?
2) Can (should) I attempt to run the correct 3/32" chain on the 11-speed chainring? Will I just eat the chainring away in a few races?
3) What is my least costly option to make this happen? The only rear wheel available is a WI ENO hub with a tubular rim. I do not have a rear wheel that I'm willing to sacrifice to play the 11-speed cog and spacer game with. They're all clinchers, anyway. I'm not 100% committed to the WI freewheel option, BUT I do have a $75 credit to a seller that is offering them, and at that level of discount, I can basically get three different sizes for around $100 out-of-pocket, and that's a pretty sweet deal to pass on.
Thanks for comments and ideas.
