I just bought and installed a new 21t White Industries ENO Freewheel, and boy is it ever spinning in an ellipse, making the chain bounce up and down a lot. I can see it deviate at the "seal" as I backpedal on the stand by a couple of mm. It's impossible to evenly tension the chain, and tensioning it appropriately at the tightest point leaves it slacker than I like elsewhere in the revolution. Will it even out as I ride it or will it always be problematic? (Andy yes, I know it's not the chainring)

Please let us know if it is (as I would expect with WI's reputation) or isn't (I have to believe mine is an anomaly).

I just got it, and it sure is purty.... is the deviation taking place between the outer part and red lockring, or are you seeing it on the back. At least in my hand it looks to be spinning o.k. I will mount it up later.

The deviation is observed between the outer part and the red lockring. Sounds like your's is good.
