Fresh build! Klein Performance w/ENO hub
I just thought I'd post my recently completed Klein Performance build up using the White Industries ENO hub.
I picked up the frame off of craigslist with a broken rear derailleur hanger for a steal, then using some existing parts, and deals from ebay, was able to construct this beauty! The black/white strips are just electrical tape and trim tape, I tried to cover nicks with them, and add some style. The ENO hub is a real nice piece of kit, but a bit tricky to adjust when you first get it. It has a tendency to rotate itself out of the dropout when adjusting the chain, but once you get the hang of it it's apiece of cake.
All work was done by yours truly, only real challenge was getting the freshly laced up ENO wheel perfectly true.
The frame was Klein's touring/relaxed road model, I believe this one is around 1989 or maybe a bit older. No gradient tubing on this guy, just the classic large tubes with super smooth welds. The seat and chain stays are huge making the frame way stiff, but because the rear wheel is so far back it rides like a dream.
If you have any specific questions just ask!
