So I just did my first oil change on the Rohloff and followed their instructions exactly. I was questioning in my mind the wisdom of squirting oil in and sucking it out without venting the pressure inside the hub from another location, wondering what it was going to do to the seals. Oh well, Rohloff knows best... they never mentioned anything about this in the instructions. I just did it slowly and carefully and tried to allow it to equilibriate every few seconds.
I finished it and leaned my wheel up against the wall about 20 degrees off vertical. A couple minutes later I go to move it and the whole thing drained on the floor, out the seal on the chainring side!
So now do I blow another $40 on another set of oil? Won't it happen again??!?!?!?
