Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 Conversion on Santa Cruz Blur LT

Rohloff SPEEDHUB equipped Santa Cruz Blur LTWe recently retrofitted this Santa Cruz Blur LT with a Rohloff SPEEDHUB 14-speed internal gear hub for a customer in Walnut Creek, CA.Rohloff SPEEDHUB with Rohloff chain tensionerOur customer rides with a group of buddies who use SPEEDHUBs but never felt the need to consider using one until he destroyed his derailleur system. Knowing that the drivetrain would need to be completely replaced, he borrowed a Rohloff-equipped bike from one of his riding partners to try out the gear hub. He tried it, liked it, and gave us a call. After talking about his riding style and past maintenance and replacement issues with a derailleur set-up, he opted for the high reliability and low maintenance offered by going with Rohloff.
