A few more newbie questions!
« on: February 17, 2017, 01:02:39 AM »
Hey, a couple of questions. I put the Rohloff wheel on a truing stand to tweak the wheel a bit and as I spun it I hear, while the bike would be coasting the pawls clicking. Is this normal? Also I see a bit of oil "weep". A ad at the drain plug and a tad at the cog side.
Thanks,

RonS

Hi, Tom

Clicking while coasting is normal. Some gears are louder than others.

Oil from drain plug not normal. Perhaps it is just not tightened enough and just needs a tweak. "Do not over tighten, though", The screw should stick out from the hub shell a bit. The absolute maximum is having the top of the screw level with the hub shell. Mine is never that tight and never leaks.

Oil on cog side is normal. Some leak more than others. It should also diminish when the bike gets ridden and the cog gets really tightened up.

All the best

Ron

Here's a good video of how a Rohloff Speedhub works:
