    Freewheel

    What freewheel do you run on your flip hub and do you run the same, larger or smaller gear?

    I use a Shimano on my flip-flop right now. But I REALLY want one of those wicked ENO freewheels. Those things are off the hook!

    I don't have any freewheels on my fixed gear road bikes, but I use a Dicta 17T and an ACS 15T on my ssmtb free/free flipflop hub. Both have functioned well in mud, snow, rain, dust etc.

    yeah i wouldn't waste the money on an eno unless that is the primary driver for the bike.

    for the occasional flip and bargain freewheel should be fine (my favorite of the cheapos being ACS).
