The White Industries ENO ("one" spelled backwards) is a brilliant solution to the problem of mounting a fixie rear wheel with the proper chain tension in a frame with vertical dropouts without resorting to a derailleur of some other chain tensioning device.

Here's the manufacturer's explanation of the rear hub:

Our eccentric ENO line of hubs are made specifically for bikes with vertical dropouts. The majority of bicycle frames made today are made with vertical dropouts, however, converting the frame to a single speed presents the problem of how to tension the chain. Chain tension with vertical frames can be addressed three ways: by using a chain tensioner, using an eccentric bottom bracket, or with our eccentric ENO. The eccentric ENO is an easy, clean, and simple answer to the problem. The eccentric rear hub allows the rider to adjust the chain tension by simply rotating the elliptical axle ends up and back in the dropouts. As the hub rotates back the chain is pulled into tension. Flip/flop design, fixed/free. Made in the USA

  • Properly set chain tension for your fixed gear project on any modern frame with vertical dropouts
  • Removes the need for a chain tensioner
  • 36 hole, 130mm, 322 grams
  • Precision machined out of 6061-T6 aluminum with for lightweight performance and durability
