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)

yes baby.. eno rules!!

just fixed my old blizzard.. now i think it had every conversion thrown at it.. i welded a disc tab on it a couple of years back, and now it has been simplified .. and iīm in love again.. fixie mtb..ahh
i threw on a set of t.a. track cranks and a miche box. build up the wheel on a ritchey rock rim.. i took the advice from the 63xc crowd and threw a 42x18 gear on it..
i was very impressed with the build quality of the eno .. really smooth out of the box which really donīt mean shi*, but still.. and all the threads was super quality even the lockring thread, which is kinda rare..
ride safe

Congrats on the Eno buildup.

Btw, for the budget conscious looking for a cheapo SS/fixed mtb hub, I just finished building up a wheel with the 135mm IRO fixed/fixed and it seems pretty excellent. Tony says it's the same hub Kogswell sells but it's only $40 for a rear as opposed to Kogswell's $80 for a set.

Really happy, can't wait for snow.

thx bostontrev
i was looking at those iro pages and it seems a sweet deal, but i just bought a set of phil to my growing collection of hubs.. they are sweet and more along the lines of moneis not an object -budget..
so the iroīs are not justafiable.. just now..
