    You might have some trouble with those drop outs - where you planning on running a White Industries rear hub ?

    As for your question - how would I know ?

    which do you like, have you ridden fixed? if not i would say to try it out and see what you think. if you've got parts for both you can already switch it over later.

    well if you have the eno hub already you can run both so......try both. they can both be set up exactly the same with just flipping the wheel around. and it would only cost you between $10-$30 to have both.

    I'd run it both too...but I prefer odd numbered rings and cogs...they wear more evenly and are easier to get more skidpatches out of. You may consider gearing the fixed side higher than the free side...just in case you get tired on a longer ride or something like hills...

    I run a 51:19 on the street and a 51:15 on the track...the skid patches (not applicable on the track) are insane.
