Serial Number

What you can expect to find on this page

Each Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 is provided with a consecutive Serial Number. This can be found either on the sticker band around the hub shell (up to number around 75000) or engraved directly into the hub shell (after Serial Number 75000).


Older SPEEDHUBs had a sticker around the shell on which the Serial Number was printed. If the tape around the hub shell should be removed at any time, then we recommend separating the section with the number using a sharp knife, so the Serial Number remains on the hub. If the tape should be removed completely, the Serial Number should be saved and/or stuck to the warranty card. Alternatively, the Serial Number can be engraved onto the hub or hub-cap!
