Eccentric Eno?......Sideways Cycles and Charliethebikemonger (I think)...or import from USA?
Very good hub but obviously all the eccentric stuff adds weight.

I had one, did what it said no problem. It does change your geometry slightly though, depending on how far you have to swing it round to take up the slack.

It also has an impact on brake alignment, be they disc or rim. If you ahve vertical drop outs and a single speed then a chain tensioner is easier IMO.

I have one, its great.

I do not notice geometry problems, when you tension the chain you adjust the brakes but its not a problem until you retension the chain, does not weigh significantly more or less than a converted freehub, looks much better than a tensioner.

Not cheap but quality is high 8) 8)

They're fecking lovely! If you're okay with non-disc bikes ( you're a Retrobiker! ) then say goodbye to EBBs, chain tensioners and brazing on track dropouts. Every steel retro pimp ride becomes a singlespeed. Even my huge 18st @rse couldn't muck it up. Bliss...
