Details
Rohloff - Stories, a book from cyclists filled with reports which increase the passion for our beloved sport. Following 10 years production of the 14-speed bicycle gear hub, Speedhub 500/14, the 100,00th gear unit was hand built before an audience at the Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen. Rohloff used the occasion to take a look back to where it all started and kick off their new campaign - "Wanted - 100,000 km", in which they set off in search of the kilometre kings and queens with their high-mileage Speedhubs.

The large number of participants now swapped their bike saddles for their desk stools and got to writing. Speedhub users reported their informative and entertaining stories of how they reached the high mileage with their Speedhub gear unit. The book also contains reports from their sponsored riders, their sporting achievements and is rounded off with a very personally written short story over the difficult but successful coming-of-age of the Rohloff AG. An interesting glance behind the scenes which tells the remarkable story behind the story. Last but not least, the technology of the Speedhub is illustrated within the book to give all readers an insight into the wondrous hub which powers their bicycle.

Approximately 480 pictures illustrate 256 pages and the resulting book captures the imagination of all readers, the stories, reports, successes and triumphs are just the thing to get the blood pumping in all passionate cyclists. Rohloff - Stories is an ideal Christmas present which will inspire all readers and help Rohloff fans survive the winter months until the return of the cycling season.

Some Inspiring Stories ...

I recommend this product
I initially thought that this was a little self indulgent on the behalf of Rohloff. However some of the stories are quite inspiring, especially the world tour accounts.

The translation from German is at times annoying however as you read through the book, that quirkiness actually becomes quite endearing and amusing. It is a great source of feedback on what Rohloff Speedhub owners have experienced after many kilometres of heavy use.

If you have a Rohloff, get a copy. If you don't, see why you should buy a Rohloff!
A Good Read

ConsNone.
ProsHardcover is nice
This is quite interesting, especially for the sheer variety of people who have cycled incredible distances on the Rohloff hubs, and they're not all uber-cyclists. A reassuring read for anyone with a Rohloff who is thinking of something long in combination with somewhere remote.
