For Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 (135 / 142 / 170 / 177 mm).

The sprocket of the Rohloff Speedhub 500/14 is secured to the gearbox over a six start thread. To remove the sprocket with a chain-whip, the driver must be firmly held in place. This is the job of the sprocket tool. It is placed over the driver, secured by a quick release lever (CC versions) or axle nut (TS versions) and can be held firmly in position with a 24mm wrench.

It's quality German engineering, just a shame that it's no good for anything else, it's so well made. It makes an otherwise impossible job something that the home mechanic can easily do.
Good tool

What is the difference between the 8501 and the 8508?
17 Apr 2019
I thought that the tool I needed was the 8501, but the 8508 looks nearly identical. Are they different or interchangeable?
Thank you for your enquiry, the 8501 & 8508 are the same tool however the 8508 option is supplied with an adapter for use with different axle lengths depending on your requirements.

How do I find out which version of this tool I need?
08 Feb 2018
I note that you list 2 versions of this tool for different sizes of Rohloff. Where do I find the size of Rohloff, as it does not say it on the hub. I have had my hub since 2009 and I use quick release skewers. Please link to the tool I should buy.
Hi there,

The sizes relate to the width of the OLN, or the gap between the frame dropouts. For the most part the product 41415 is suitable unless you have a very wide frame!
