    white industries eno hub? I had a long conversation with one of their head techs about this hub. How are you liking it? The biggest concern I had was it moving(and loosening) under torque. Sounds like its working good for you though, how bout a review?

    its eno or encentric. the axle is on something that is not centered, meaning if you rotate it around it moves the wheel forwards or backwards. Great for singlespeeds. Unfortunately when you move it back or forwards, it also moves it up and down so it can mess with your brakes if you dont have much adjustment.

    Sweet! I wish some rules would change so it would be legal for comps.

    stupid ass uci/biu rules. It makes more sense for a "stock" trials bike to have a seat than a derailleur and working gears. If youre gonna enfore a rear derailleur rule, why not a front derailleur? Singlespeeds a.k.a. giant mods would be much safer as you wouldnt have to worry about skipping a gear mid gap cuz you screwed up a sidehop.

    Thankfully i live in sweden and we are allowed to ride SS stock bikes in comps. :). i wouldent ride a bike without some sort of tensioner, either singelator or derailur. freewheels and chains dont seem to cope with trials. oh and btw "nice KOXX" basicly all try-all parts. a echo lvlboss frame and some other nice stuff

    WI

    when i found first time about that Eric's Eccentric rear hub on White Ind web site then i was 'wow!'. After that i thought that it could move (and loosening) under torque. But i decided to give it a go...
    When i got it from WI (pretty fast by the way) i immediately put it on my rear wheel and went outside to test it.
    So, on the 1st day from the harsh trials on big rock results was - loosen chain just a bit (3-4 hours of drop'n ups and others stuff). To make it perfect, i've made the same pin like on mod frames to stop tensioners from any movings.
    I've been using this hub for 6 monthesnow. There is no any mess with the brake whatsoever! you can take off your wheel and put it back just in 1-2 minutes and don't need to touch your brakes!
    So after that i've got more confidence in makings jumps (side hops etc.) to the right side...
    It's the best hub for singlespeed 26" bikes.
    No shifters - no problems.
    One speed for trials! :)

    For what it's worth my new stock frame isn't even going to have a derailure hanger. I love custom bikes...

    Cool hub too, any ever see the BB version of this design? That wouldn't change wheen position at all, just crank arm position.

    well tandems very often have encentric bottom brackets so a trials version cant be that far away.

    yes this hub seems to be tha shit for SS mtbs. I would love to have one, it's a shame they don't make a cassette version with their really nice 36pt ti freehub (I have an older WI 9sp hub, has been through four or five trials/street/mtb bikes and still runs awesome. Will be going onto my zeb street machine soon). Although with the WI eno freewheels it would go super nice. Eccentric bottom brackets, I think, would have to be so overbuilt to cope with trials bash forces that the weight would be impractical.

    the people at white industires are really cool. One of the ladies I talked to about the hub, I told her I was using it for trials. She asked if I had a race resume, or something so she could give me a race discount. I told her I use to go to competitions, but I crash alot and I would place dead last. She laughed and said when I'm ready to call to order it direct, ask for her, and Id get a race discount anyways on one of these and a trials freewheel.

    really nice people.

    I recently got my Kore working. I found some clamp in a parts bin at work, used an plate that goes to a bike trailer that about 3/4 an inche long, and has two bolt holes. Basically switched the faggy ghey clamp that was on the kore, and used this one I found. Used screws with lock nuts (they have that plastic wing in the threads so it can't back out, as well as using lock washers, so it should stay tight. I'll take a pic and upload it here....looks like it came that way cause it's so cleanly done, and it functions FLAWLESSLY. Also, I have to DON'T worry about a hanger...yay!!!
