    Question about Rohloff

    I installed RH on my moots and rode it today on pavement - it has been raining here so all trails are off limits. It works fine but I had a feeling that its engagament was a bit slow compared to my king ss wheels that were on this bike prior to RH. What is your word on it? How does RH stack up agains king?

    The engagement is slower on the Rohloff, but you get used to it pretty quickly.

    This is correct. The Rohloff Speedhub has 16 engagement points, in line with typical freewheels and hubs. Nowhere near King's 72 engagement points.
