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)

Converting Merlin TR

Looking to convert my Merlin tr to a single speed. I am goin to use an eno hub. The part that confuses me is ensuring the correct chain line. How do I ensure the correct chain line, what are my options?

I have an ENO hub and it works with a typical road double crankset. I think the chainline is 47.5mm

I think that will work. Got any recommendations on where I can get a rear wheel built.
