My wife and I did test ride an Equator with Rohloff and all Gates drivetrain a couple of years ago. We both liked the way it rode and the elimination of chains appealed to me. But the one thing that prevented us from buying it was the noise made by the Rohloff hub in some gears, ratios that we would frequently use. My stoker is especially sensitive to any noise from the bike as she knows that it should be silent unless something isn’t working properly. Comotion said that the noise would get quieter with use but never completely go away. We may be more sensitive to this than most teams, but just something to be aware of if you’re considering the Rohloff hub.
