    Fat Tire Rohloff

    I stopped by Cyclemonkey and Neil had this thing built up. I just had to get a photo of it. Too cool.

    It'd be sexier in radioactive green, but yeah, that's nice.

    Neil's building the same rim for me with a black Rohloff. I saw a photo of a green hub on line, but Rohloff doesn't offer one that I know of. Is that a special order...

    Not special order (AFAIK) -- custom!

    I have one of those in black. And it was in Neil's hands last fall for a short time and now it works better than ever.

    Don't know if this is what you saw, but if ordered with a frame, Endofin offer Rohloffs in custom shells (shells made by Tune). Shells in silver, black, red, blue, green and gold.
    This is no place for logic and facts; this is the internet.

    do they need to put a reverse dish on the wheel? Just looks like there is an offset spoke drilling ont he rim, and the rohloff has no offset?

    It's to address the 100mm wide BB on the Pugsley. The rim stays centered on the frame, but the hub is offset 18mm to the drive side to align the cog with the crank. That's Surly's solution to prevent having to run a ridiculously wide hub.
