Can't say I have... but always thought the original pretty exxy for what they are. Probably more a case of relatively low production AND cashing in on the FG/SS revival/fad.

You would've thought some of those flattering plagiarists in China might've come up with something by now. I know when I was riding the FG wave double toe straps were all ludicrously priced until a few rebranded generics came along.

I think I remember reading on Saint Sheldon's pages somewhere you can file an edge of the axle that sits in the dropouts to give you (upto) a few mm's worth of 'adjustment'. Not especially elegant... but...

They're expensive, but the quality is amazing; an eno is actually worth it.

I run some white hubs. They are excellent and, relative to the competition (Chris King, Alchemy etc), superb value.

I love my eno. I would definitely make the investment - you will only need to spend the money once as they are absolutely bulletproof.
