Whether you keep your drivetrain clean or not, your Rohloff hub needs periodic service. It is recommended that you have an oil change in the hub once a year or every 3000 miles. Tandem Diversity can perform a hub oil change on your Rohloff hub-equipped tandem or single bike. This requires an overnight stay - we allow the old oil to drain out overnight to ensure complete removal and to guard against overfilling the hub with oil.
An oil change includes:
Remove old oil
Clean with special cleaning oil
Install fresh hub oil
Clean and lube gearbox
Clean belts and apply silicone protectant/lubricant
Limited safety check
Check headset adjustment
Check brake adjustment
Check belt tension
Check for proper torque on stem and handlebar bolts
Check cables and housing
Make any necessary service recommendations
Pricing is $50. This includes all the above service, labor, and small parts.
