Nice example well found, Mac'. Interesting wrap on the Rohloff EX box cable entry, evidently designed to prevent water entry with the upright shift-box orientation.

Best,

Dan.

Yes, Dan, it's a good looking bike. The wrap looks like a repurposed inner tube.

Damn I Bid 985. Went very reasonable in my opinion. Need an off road Rohloff this would have done me till I spot something just right. My knee is not up to 2.5-3 hour walking the dog. So I am using Rohloff tourers not great in muddy conditions. The raven enduro is not suitable for carrying heavy panniers so it would have been a stop gap, a good one though.
Thinking of having one built by Sven cycles.  It needs to take a bit of weight as I inevitably do a bit foraging. Firewood being high on my foraging list. Alas I think this is going to far!!
