Installation to Frame
Securing to the Frame
Here we explain our modular system. You will learn the basics for installing a SPEEDHUB in a bicycle.
The SPEEDHUB can be mounted to various frame styles, by simply selecting the correct Axleplate.
Information on the following subjects can be found here:
- Wheel lacing
- Choosing the correct spokes
- Spoke length calculation
- Flange rings for hub shells
- Lacing examples for European / French drilled rims
- particularly suitable rims
The orientation of your axleplate, is dependent on the location of the selected cable guide. Further information on the correct orientation for your bicycle can be found here.
The Rohloff Twist Shifter will fit on all standard, 7/8" straight handlebars. It can be mounted to either side of the handlebar, so right-hand and left-hand grip rubbers (which show the gear indicator) are available for the requried orientation.

When the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 is delivered fitted in a complete bike, then it is already filled with oil. When not, it will need to be filled with 25ml Rohloff SPEEDHUB OIL before usage. A 25mm bottle of Rohloff SPEEDHUB OIL is included in the package.
