    I was lucky enough to have this given to me today.



    It all has about 14k commuting km on it, so the Rohloff has just broken in! It's bloody heavy too. The frame has a few marks in the surface coat but otherwise looks good. The forks seem okay. The wheels need looking at with a few split nipples. If I can fit a 700C/29" rear wheel in there I'll rebuild the Rohloff wheel in that size and turn it into a commuter.

    Rohloff Road Bike Update

    Hey, sorry for the delayed response. I got to be honest I haven't put much more work into it since I last posted here and am actually going to sell the bike. You can see some picts of the finished product, or at least as far as I have finished it here.

The bike feels a bit weird at the moment because Iíve now got a strong, solid feeling rear rim and a front rim best described as flimsy that you can physically see flexing on tight corners but Iíll have that fixed soon and Iíll have some lighter bits to compensate for the weight increase. Anyway, as others have said the shift is so slick you hardly notice it, all the gears feel super smooth, the hub is completely silent which I love, to my surprise it spins freely after hardly any use, it always shifts when pedalling although it does take a little longer if your really pedalling hard, the shifter works in reverse of a normal derailleur type shifter in that you release the smaller lever get into easier gears etc which I think I will be able to get used to, the highest gear is just about perfect for the fast XC riding in my area but I havenít had a chance to take it to more challenging terrain to try out the lower gears yet. Iím running 18T rear cog and 32T front and I also put a set of Hutchinson Toro 1.85 & 2.15 tires on to improve mud performance over the Michelin dry weather tires previously on there.

    I like the Alfine so far. The clutch feeling is a little weird, but not bad weird.



    Thats sick!!

    That rear wheel definitely falls under the "not for everybody" catagory

    Not for me, that's for sure, but each to their own, I suppose.....

    And why not, we are only as old as we think we are.

    Mountain biking is my hobby as well as my passion. It is also my creative outlet. This bike is a product of my own design. A bike that could not or should not be built. With all the blood, sweat and tears that goes along with a project like this. If I should build such a bike, why not make it wacky and outlandish as to be noticed unique among all the bikes out there? For if you see this bike on the trails or at the races, you will take note, and if you see me again you will definitely remember.

    Kona Bass Rohloff

    Hi guys!

    Here's a picture of my rig from last summer in the Finnish wilderness. It's a Kona Bass frame with Rohloff, Magura Thor front and Mavic XM819 UST's. I even got its weight to stay quite low at about 28,5 lbs. It works like a charm as my all-rounder!

    Inbred Urban Mtb.

    Here we have a Rohloff equipped urban mtb build almost entirely from craigslist and the parts bin.

    I ran this Rohloff on my hardtail for a few years and got tired of the weight of the thing. So -- I tracked down one of these On One Inbred frames with singlespeed track ends and a chainstay brake mount.
    The Jandd Expedition rack is absurdly heavy as is the sprung saddle. These are some of the things I'll have to rethink.

    For now -- here it is. I'm running a single Surly Tugnut on the drive side which seems to be working just fine. I'm quite happy about that because I don't think I can fit one more doo-dad on the non-drive side.

    My Dialled Alpine with a Nuvinci

    I am new to posting on this site , I have a Dialled Alpine with a Nuvinci hub ,I ride this to work . I have tinkered with the components and have had many different components on the bike . Hated chain tensioners and bottom eccentric brackets seemed a half measure . I altered the frame myself made my own dropouts and welded them on .Mush happier with this set up .The main gripe I have is with Nuvinci but I am working on that ,I know I will not be happy until I get a Rohloff
