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

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.
