Rohloff Esteems Heavy Users

FULDATAL, Germany – The Rohloff 14-speed hub gear has become popular since the first ones were produced in 1996. On the occasion of reaching the landmark of 100,000 hubs produced since 1996, Rohloff organized a raffle hub among the heavy users who cycled more than 60,000 kilometres (!) with a Rohloff hub.

The German built hubs are well known for their endurance. Although he did not win the first prize in the raffle; a gold plated Rohloff hub, Thomas Longin reported the most kilometres of all participants: an amazing 143,900 kilometres since 1999.

Last Saturday all the heavy users gathered at the hub factory for a meet and greet with the family Rohloff and see the production with their own eyes. Currently Rohloff is producing 20,000 hubs annually and is focusing on the high-end market.
