    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

    Nooo, why? SS/FG Merlins make me sad.

    I am being a lame buzzkill; carry on.

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