    Fatbike-specific Rohloff SPEEDHUB 170mm

    Rohloff has announced a fatbike-specific version of the SPEEDHUB 500/14 featuring 170mm axle spacing. Named the “SPEEDHUB XL,” it's the first and only fatbike-specific internal gear hub on the market and the first substantial change to Rohloff’s original hub design since it debuted in 1998. The XL hubs use the same internals as the original SPEEDHUB 500/14. The SPEEDHUB XL will be available at the end of August through Cycle Monkey, the sole North American service partner for Rohloff products.

    Bada$$! I saw a post about the XL in the Gordo on FB. Looks like a game changer.
