    Twenty2 Cycles Rohloff fattie

    Some photos of my Twenty2 Cycles 135mm offset Rohloff fattie. Inspired, in part, by riding for a month with Joe Cruz in South America (Perú) and by Jakob; this bike will be riding the Canning Stock Route in just over 2 months. Scott Felter's Hunter fat long-tail will be in there too.

    The photos are from a recent trip to Dwellingup (Western Australia), and some experimentation with very long exposures.

    Thank you for your indulgence :-)

    Looks great Tom

    I'm [slowly] working on a Rohloff for my Krampus.

    Have a safe and successful trip.
    Safe riding,

    Looks like someone cut the rear brake housing a little long, is all.

    That is one handsome bike.

    It's more that I've not got round to cutting the hydraulic hose shorter! As it happens with the hosing this long it fits rather nicely round the outside of my bar-roll, rather than having to kink the cable when I'm using it. As I'm English/Australian, it's also the front brake cable/hose, not the rear!

    You're finally using that 'spare' Rohloff?! ;-)

    I will if and when I get the new Krampus wheels rolling. Of course that means I'll have a spare Alfine 11 wheel set.

    I've got a Rabbit Hole coming for a 29x3 rear wheel for the fattie. Am still undecided as to whether I'll build it on a Hope SS/Trials rim or a (don't tell the missus) second Rohloff...

    You know how some people sleep easier with a gun under their pillow? I'm like that, but I like to have a spare Rohloff in the garage.

    Don't worry I never bike gossip with the womenfolk. What a man has in his spares bin is between him, his bike buddies and the Bike Gods.

    I think it would be foolish not to have a second Rohloff!

    It's more that I would then have more than she does ;-) (You think my bike is cool - just wait to see hers!)

    Love it... You must be one of the currently 2 Twenty2 cycles in Australia... Mine (if it ever gets here) will be the 3rd.. Cannot wait as it will be custom Ti and Rohloff also.. Would be keen to have a chat to you re Customs and shipping etc.

    Funny I just went to load my Pugs with some Porcelain Rocket bags and realized by neat and tidy front brake cable housing is so short I can't mount the bar bag.

    LOL - serves me right for going all minimal!

    Nice job with the exposures. From the DOF I presume you went with fast lenses and a neutral density filter? Not that it's terribly important, but your white balance seems notably cooler in the 2nd shot versus the rest of the set. Hope to see more of your photos posted.

    I did - most of the photos were with a 70-200mm (FF equiv) f/2.8 lens and a 10-stop ND filter.

    The WB thing - laziness on my part. The ND filter gives photos with a 'warm' white balance - I wasn't very consistent with my 'fixing' of it in Lightroom (I shoot in RAW, so have maximum options for WB correction).

    There will be lots more photos coming - the Canning Stock Route trip is inspiring me as much from a photographic point of view as the riding and remoteness.

    Thank you for your comments. These shots were my first experiments with ND filters.

    Mate, that is sweet...

    Just curious why you have positioned the external gear mech in that position? Makes for very long cables.. How's it ride??

    Oh, and what size/ weight for complete build??

    Especially when the drop-out looks as if it's a Rohloff compatible one - giving much shorter cabling (less prone to getting caught on things). Did you already have a Rohloff from another build that you've used on this?

    Just curious :-)

    With the OEM slider drops the plate should be unbolted and repositioned straight down for a proper and clean setup

    Currently finishing up another frame... Adam's custom rohloff belt drive....pic of the front triangle tacked up last week.

    Cheers!

    Another Twenty2 Cycles in Australia

    Well, here is the finished product from the guys at Twenty2 Cycles. Some studio shots to whet the appetite with the bike currently on it's way to Oz.

    Custom Ti Bully from Twenty2 Cycles (near on XXL frame)
    Rohloff speedhub
    Gates carbon belt drive
    Carver O'Beast carbon fork
    Eriksen Ti post
    Faceface Turbine cranks

    All up, weight came in at 29lb 15oz with tubes but no pedals. For a bloody big bike, I am stoked with the weight. Will go tubeless in time to save another pound or so.

    All those pics are totally beautiful, as is ecerything I've yet seen created by these guys. I had the pleasure of designing (well, the guys at Twenty2Cycles did the design, I just came up with the concept), and now owning(!) the prototype for the Rohloff-Gates combo, along with the two-sets-of-wheels set-up (one fat bike wheelset, one road/touring/cross/29er wheelset.) Here's a link to some pics along with the full story of how the concept came about for me and my FANTASTIC experience working with Todd and Ben and the whole Twenty2Cycles crew: More About My Bike - The Totally Well You!
