Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

what's up with this eno eccentric hub chainline

I've measured about 20 times. I am getting exactly 47.5 at my front ring, but the fixed side of the ENO is 42 something. The free side is about 47 or 48, so that is fine.

What the hello is up with the fixed side? I have the cog facing the correct direction.

Good to know. At least I'm not nuts (on this issue).

I set mine up centaur cranks (uses 111mm bb) and a chorus bb (102mm) this moved the ring about 4.5mm closer than campagnolo intended. The clearance is very close, but the chain line is almost perfect.

Originally I had chorus cranks (moved to geared ride) and the chain line was as you describe.

I ended up using 4mm spacers to move my chainring inboard. 35T ring is almost scraping the chainstay. But it works.
