My opinion of SA hubs is colored by the time my father went OTB riding to work. Seeing your dad with his face all scraped up when you're a kid is something you never forget. Then again, there no...

That's fine, I wanted to put your experience in context. If you are touring with it, which is what it looks like, it's a great setup. If you aren't riding 750 miles in less than 90 hours, which is...

I'm curious what the longest distance you have ridden that that bike in a single day? Have you ridden a 1200km grand brevet on that bike?

Did you ride Tour Divide?

I think that the rohloffs that didn't have oil aren't necessarily a neutral point against them for long distance. Randonneurs are probably the worst riders I know for...

The best way to do Adrian Hands time is to go fast and stop at a lot of cafes on the way back from Brest.

Definitely could have lost some weight and trained more sensibly for 2019. I was working too hard to get a khound, which ended up being a significant part of my dnf.

I think the most important...

I don't think the OP's desire for a Rohloff stems from it being part of a dream bike. I always wanted one, but the price put me off. One thing I would say about derailleurs is that the latest and...

Shimano hubs aren't particularly efficient on or off. If you want to charge something, you're better off with an SP or SoN. It seems like test results differ on which of those is better. Everybody...

For the 200k that you might do someday, the drag from even the worst dynohub, plus an IGH, plus rubbing brakes is mostly academic. Because who cares if you take an extra 15 minutes on a 200k? Over a...

I thought it had more climbing in 2019 too, but the parts I didn't like were essentially the same. I really don't remember the westbound climb up le roc'h being quite so long. The last stretch...

Clasher, make sure your derailleur limit screws are just a tiny bit loose when it's in the largest sprocket -- front or rear. Someone told me that's why they fray and it seems reasonable since they...

I have thought about working on this, since my ftp seems to be inexorably falling. Although the security of dyno lights is hard to give up. What headlights are you using? What do you do about...

AFAIK, he never rode the Americano on more than a couple brevets, if any, he had a carbon Giant he used to ride before the TI bike. I don't think the Americano gets much love except for a very...

I don't think I have ever seen any Rohloff hubs on PBP, but I'm sure there have been some. I don't know that I was aware of derailleur failures on PBP. Wheels, yes.
