    Rohloff Monkeybone on Chainstay IS Mounts

    Morning
    Investigating the possibility of putting a Rohloff on my Stooge and how to anchor the hub.
    Stooge has chainstay mounted IS disc brake mounts so if use a monkeybone the OEM2 plate will be facing forward. I understand this is a big no no may force the rear wheel out of a vertical drop out under load and instant death!
    If this is the case what are my anchor options? Want o avoid the torque arm if I can

    Thanks!

    My Monkey Bone....I have seen them upside down and backwards...so I'm not sure. check out all different axle plates Rohloff has to offer.

    If you can see in the photo:
    There was enough space between the frame tab and the caliper to fit the OEM2 without the need of a Monkeybone.

    My calipers were Hope Mono Mini
