Gear hubs for MTB's & touring bikes
For a long time internal gear hubs were only offered in 5-speed or 7-speed configurations. It was the Speedhub 500/14 by Rohloff which lifted this limit. Rohloff has managed to integrate 14 speeds into a hub.
The gears have even increments of 13.6% which results in a total gear range similar to a 27-speed derailleur shifting systems.
Recently Shimano has also introduced a cheap gear hub called Alfine with 11-speeds.
You can purchase both the Rohloff
500/14 as well as the Shimano Alfine in our online shop.
