    Question for ENO ECCENTRIC users ???

    I have a question for anyone using the eno eccentric hub.
    Do you think the eccentric hub will work with a frame with rear facing dropouts?
    - look at rear drop outs-


    Does the eno hub clamp to the frame dropouts the same as a geared hub?
    This frame doesn’t have ANY movement like a forward facing dropout would.

    Thanks.

    Yea man an ENO is what you need and it will work seamlessly with that frame, it tightens to the frame with allen bolts that screw into the axle of the hub.

    Ditto. You should be fine.

    Any guesses on spoke length? I plan on using a Mavic XC 717 with the ENO.
    I would like to order everything at once.

    That's the rim my ENO wheel uses. I didn't build it, so am not 100% sure of the spoke length, but they measure *about* 260mm. The guys at Webcyclery should know for sure.

    I remember reading their blurb on it back when they made those... they actually claimed weight savings was one! Another reasons were the wheel drops out easier (I didn't really get that one) for tire changes. In fact, if you think about it, it would make removing the wheel a pain in the ass.

    +1 for the ENO. Sweet simplicity.

    Come to think of it, how the hell do you remove the loop of chain from the cogs when the wheel can't move in front of the der.??? Sonds like a sure way to get your hands very dirty and maybe damage the der. and chain.
    And then.. weight savings???

    Klein was also a huge proponent of internal cable routing... They had some wacky ideas in the late 90's, early 00's, that's for sure.

    The main benefit of a rear facing dropout is the wheel can't be pulled out while pedaling if the skewer isn't tight.
    The wheel comes out easy, just different. I have a harder time with forward facing dropouts now that I'm used to the rear facing dropouts.
