    Has anyone fitted a rohloff hub to there Enduro Sl

    I am considering the addition of a Rohloff hub to my Enduro am interested if anyone else has done this and how it all worked out. I am well aware of all the pro's and con's with these hubs but I think it would be worth it.

    I think someone with an sworks enduro sl had one done, I think I saw it in the sworks gallery...? Looks very clean and simple.

    Are you really prepared for that extra weight on whats a light bike .
    Its even a heavy set up on a DH bike

    Based on info I have read the overall weight difference when you take into account the removal of all parts no longer required is about 200 grams.
    If this is the case I can live with that. If anyone can say from personnel experience that this is not correct I would like to hear from you.

    I'd be interested in any photos you may have of your bike.
    Is the double cable system able to be run neatly???

    i builded my bike from scratch, so there where no parts to be to remove.
    i builded more than 20 bike with rohloff and all where between 300 and 500g havier when finished. you know, depends on wether it's a freerider or a cc-racer.
    most noticable things i think are: 1. you need a bit more tire pressure in the rear, 'cause of the havier rear wheel. 2. a bit less pressure in the rear shock and faster rebound setting, also because of the havier rear wheel.

    Thanks any information is good.
    Ive heard the hub makes some noise is this an issue?
    Is gear changing whilst under load ok or do you need to back off on the pedals?
