    Rohloff QR vs Bolt In

    I have tried searching but couldn't really find the answer to my question. If I want to put a Rohloff in my Tallboy that has 10x135 QR, what are the advantages/disadvantages of putting the bolt in Rohloff hub on it?

    I like my solid axle, although it's not a true solid axle. Without explaining why, I recommend you get the solid axle if possible, and not the QR.

    Hope this helps....

    my qr rohloff has been fine, but I have it on sliders with an OEM drop out. I'm not sure if there is any advantage with a solid axle with other setups.

    I ended up getting a deal I couldn't pass up on the 32h QR setup, after doing a bit more searching it seems it should be fine.

    I'm using a QR on both of my Rohloff bikes and had nary a problem with either.

    Interestingly enough, I ordered a solid axle and received a QR unit when it arrived. I was disappointed at first, but couldn't possibly resist installing it as I had a cycling trip planned for a couple days after it arrived.

    I've since cycled over 1200km this summer which including 3 flat tires. The rohloff has felt great the whole time and I really enjoyed being able to pull it off, reasonably easily, for flat repairs.

    The vendor has since offered to exchange the axles (I guess any rohloff service center can change out the axle and a few innards to change it out). I haven't felt any need to at this point (at least on my bike) but its supposed to offer a stiffer interface to the bike and is favored for downhill use.

    So all I can say is I'm happy with my QR rohloff.
