Anyone tried one of these or know of alternatives...?

Problem is keeping a straight chainline when running a hope screw on hub for singlespeed... :?

Indeed, the chainline is very close in and something has to be done.

I solved this by building up my Hope screw-on wheel with the axle reversed. The wheel has dish on the left hand side instead. You have to build it with the left spokes on the right and vice-versa. It's lasted 10 years now.

Wow, nice solution - I had to look at the picture for quite some time before realising what was going on... I'm not quite at the wheel building stage yet as the wheel is whole so I think I might try this adaptor. It's definitely a less-slick solution than reversing the dish though... very interesting 8)
