Tilmann rides the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 cross both America's continents.
What else can be said about Tilmann Waldthaler? He's one of the most known if not the most famous bike traveller ever. Since 1977 he has almost been riding 400,000km on his bike crossing 108 different countries. Beginning of October 2001 he has changed the drive train on his Koga Miyata World Traveller to a Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 and ran off immediately on his tour from Alaska cross America to Patagonia.
He writes the following about the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 under equipment:
Up to now I´ve only ridden approx. 75.000km with the Rohloff products but I´ve been so impressed after this period of time. I had used Shimano and Campagnolo products for so many years and then finally decided to try something different and new. I've ridden over many bumps and passes in the states since October 8th and I´ve been convinced already over the quality of the products. Simply when changing a tyre, I think back to the decision to go with Rohloff products.
