    Rohloff on a SOMA JUICE

    Will a Rohloff work with the SOMA JUICE? Any experience?

    Yes, but you'll need a speedbone for discs or a torque arm for v-brakes. You might want to consider a bolt on axle version to keep it in place in the horizontal dropouts.

    You could look at one of these Misfit diSSent frames, they have a Rohloff compatible dropout.

    "What Rocky said..."

    I'd definitely get the bolt-on version for that frame, or any other with horizontal drops.

    And as appealing as it may seem, don't use the extended dropout in combination with a OEM axle plate for anti-torque duties. I've seen photos of standard horizontal drops twisted open by the torque from this hub. Stick with a Speedbone or ulgy torque arm unless the dropouts were designed with a Speedhub in mind.
