I have a few questions.
I have an old Vitus with vertical dropouts, with a Whites Industries Eno Eccentric hub.

1. The clearance between the back tire and in between the seat stays (wear the back brake is installed) is virtually non-existant.

2. Do I need to buy a new crankset and chainring. The guy at the LBS told me I did, but he also didn't know the difference between a ss and a fixie.

Again I apologize for my ignorance, and I thank you in advance.

#1 is only a problem if your wheel goes out of true or it flexes from side to side a lot. I didn't have much on my Bianchi and it was fine.
