    Aftermarket eccentric hub converter



    Haven't seen these posted before...seem like a very simple product which is what I love about them. Would it be possible to make something like this for Formulas or even a universal version?

    I considered that it could be possible to make something that used the existing hub hardware and would simply add a second dropout...but one that could "swing" in adjustment.

    I wonder how the axle stays fixed to the adapter? If there is a fixing screw, it would kill the threads of the axle and make it impossible to remove once set.

    It might replace the axle and everything. Who knows.

    I'd really like to put my hands on one of those... but sadly, dmrbikes.com does NOT seem to actually stock them (in contrast with what the webpage to which the picture links to, states). In other words, no idea where to order it from.

    Have you contacted them? If so, what did they say about the part?

    Then perhaps they have access to the part.

    Who exactly is "they"? There are at least 2 different entities involved here.

    "They" are the people at gleitmittel who sell parts online.

    I thought I can order the part from dmrbikes.com. My bad.
    I have now contacted gleitmittel - will let you know when/if they answer.

    DMR doesn't make the part.
    It seems like it's a aftermarket part gleitmittel designed specifically for the DMR Revolver SS rear hub. The one with a 14mm axle.
    i'd think it'd be hard to replicate this for a hub with a 10mm axle

    partial page translation:

    Hub set

    Fixedfinished hub to a spokes
    Immediately you can buy installed hub sets with us, inclusive hub, Excenter, wheel nuts and free-wheel
    everything installed, fits at MTB frameworks.
    (rigid pinions on request)

    CHF 249. - -
    ONLY IN BLACK AVAILABLE!
    ORDER


    Other hubs:
    On request we build the Excenter also to your hub (if it is technically possible) - inquire us nevertheless simply!
    We sell the Excenter also individually, for the perfect assembly must however the hub be worked on!

    ^^^Thanks, Sampler. I sure hope I can get the Excenter separately, and at a reasonable price. I am not paying CHF 250 for a hub - any hub. That's almost double what I paid for the fscking ENO.

    I believe that CHF249 includes front hub and freewheel?

    And they supposedly sell that item by itself.
