Aerospoke Hub?

Does a Aerospoke rear wheel have its special hub? I have vertical dropouts, I bought a eno hub to convert it to a fixie. Can I just go to a bike shop and tell them to switch out the hubs, so I can have a Aerospoke on my bike?

Nope, not going to work. The Aerospoke hub fits only the Aerospoke wheel, and vice-versa. Lace the ENO hub to a deep-section rim.

You could ask White Industries if they want to make an ENO hub to fit an Aerospoke wheel, but I suspect it'd cost a bundle.

As if the regular ENO hub doesn't cost enough already...

If you really want to use the "aero"spoke with your frame, you need to find the magic ratio. This is the gear ratio that gives you proper chain tension with the wheel in the dropouts. I've done it successfully on a few bikes now, and it isn't too terrible. You'll just have to play with chainring/cog sizes a little.

But since you seem to have plenty of money to throw at this project, why not just get a new frame?
