Would love a Rohloff hub. The other option is a Nuvinci but they are not readily available. Dont think they have anything for a mtb either.

 

See yourself on a yellow bike Mampara?

Sorry YeloooGP, nie my fiets nie. Ek het nie genoeg geld of R6000+ uit te haal net vir die agterste hub nie. Maar dan weer, hoeveel kos 'n hub, derailleurs, en shifters deesdae. Met die een is als ingebou in een.

how does the rear hub know which gear ratio to use for your cadence ?

 

or am I not understanding the rear hub function correctly

There is a small gearbox inside there and you select gears with a twist grip shift. It is not automatic.LOL

in the 100miler we had to go through muddy water filled donga's that covered the hubs - is this hub sealed sealed, or just sealed?

 

What would happen if muddy water got in ?

Slowbee, I think it is completely sealed with nothing getting in or out.

 

 

 

Now imagine that thing with a belt drive. It will be super quiet.

I would think it is properly sealed so that nothing can get in since the internals actually run in oil. Only maintenance required is an oil change once a year.

 

As I've stated before, these things simply run forever and ever. I've heard of guys in Europe putting +60000 kms on one of these without a single service. It only came into the shop because the cog was so worn the chainwhip culdn't grip it to get the lockring off.

 

And Rohloff was testing one on one of their race bikes and running it without oil. It had been running for 4yrs.

 

I love german reliability.
