    Best way for dropouts to accomodate Rohloff Hubb

    I am interested in building a hard tail mountain bike with Rohloff Hubs, while keeping the option of tradition rear derailer available in case I fail miserably with the IGH. This will be a custom frame, so potentially all options are on the table.

    I would definitely prefer not to use the chain tensioner.

    Any suggestions of the setup? Is paragon slider the way to go?

    Thank you.

    Pretty much, assuming you want to use a disc brake.

    Other option is EBB but having used both, I prefer sliders. The nice thing about sliders is you can use an OEM1 axle plate, just make sure you get the Rohloff specific sliders which have a longer slot on the left side for the OEM1 plate. If'n you don't like the Rohloff (but you will, believe me), that Rohloff sliders are an easy swap out for derailleur friendly ones.
