• The Rohloff Speedhub - the perfect performance-oriented wheelbuild 05 September 2016 | View comments

  • You might imagine that here at Practical Cycles, we're all about mundane, dependable and utilitarian transport, rather than anything that would necessarily get your heart racing. Well, if there's anything in our product range to indicate pretty emphatically otherwise, it has to be the Rohloff Speedhub.

    What's all of the fuss about?

    As you might have guessed from the name, the Rohloff Speedhub is the product of a German company, Rohloff AG, which produces hub gears and bicycle chains renowned for delivering a high level of durability and performance.

    The epicyclic internal hub gear that is known as the Speedhub has been a fixture of the Rohloff product range since 1998, and for good reason. It was developed for both professional racers and performance-oriented hobby cyclists, and boasts every perk from perfect single gear ratios and a wide range of gears to easy operation, reliability and low maintenance.

    Naturally, as its name would suggest, it also helps to make your bike darned quick, and has the ideal weight for precisely that. But most of all it is reliable year after year after year.

    Order your Rohloff Speedhub conveniently online with us

    If there's anything as pleasing as the high performance delivered by the Speedhub itself, however, it is the sheer ease and speed with which you can order one assembled to your exact desired specifications.

    Yes, we're referring to our dedicated custom wheelbuild configurator right here at Practical Cycles, which enables you to stipulate exactly what hub, rim, spokes and spoke pattern you require for your Rohloff Speedhub.

    This feature is especially invaluable given how notoriously tricky it can be to determine the Speedhub that best fits your specific needs - indeed, you are welcome to contact us with your requirements if you would like more tailored guidance prior to placing an order.

    Whether you desire a Mavic Open Pro or Rigida Sputnik rim, Sapim Race or Sapim Leader spokes or any of a broad range of extras including rim tape, a Rohloff-specific disk rotor or Rohloff's own chain tensioner, Oil Change Kit or Chain Guide, our complete online custom wheelbuild configurator really does make things as quick and easy as can be.

    So, when you are seeking a wheelbuild of such quality and performance that it would not look out of place in the most expensive touring bicycles or mountain bikes, why look any further than the Rohloff Speedhub that we are so delighted to supply right here at Practical Cycles?
