I've searched the forum and not found much. Lots of questions...
Is anyone using the WI Dos Enos freewheel and loving it? Is it worth the price? As this will be my first SS/fixie I don't know how much I'll use the extra cog. How often and when do people flip/flop between different cogs or fixed and unfixed?
Are WI freewheels worth the extra money for a project conversion bike?
What alternatives are recommended?
I'm planning on using a WI eccentirc hub to convert my old (old to me 2001 Trek 1200 stipped and repainted) road bike, does anyone else make an eccentic hub? For those people who have this hub, how is it?
Also, I'm planning on using a LX bb and cranks (old 1997 shimano triple from mtb) on this bike. I've got a Truativ 44t ramped ring I plan on using. With spacers, mounting the ring inside the cranks etc will I be able to get a straight chainline?
Is it a major problem to use a lightly worn chainring, well used chain and new freewheels and cogs? Should I budget for a new chain? And ring?
Sheldon Brown's site says mtb chain lines are 47.5-50mm The bb length is 113mm, is it likely that I could make this work on a Trek roadbike with a WI eno eccentric hub?
