Re: Installed Rohloff Photos
- When I noted that the Civia Hykand uses the external shuft mechanism
version of the Rohloff hub like the bike in one of the photos I also
should have noted that it is also fitted with the Rohloff disc brake
mount option and Rohloff brake disc. The bike has hydraulic disc
brakes fitted front and rear. I will try to take some photos in the
next few days of all my gear hub bikes and upload them.
All members are encouraged to upload your own photos too.
