Rohloff hub serial numbers reference
« on: November 17, 2013, 03:05:40 AM »
Hi All,
How about we create a list of Rohloff hub serial numbers with names and locations, and maybe type of Bike.
I think it would be interesting to see where Rohloff hubs ended up!


So, let me start. The next one shall Copy and Paste my line and add Your own.

Yes Dan but we (Old Unicyclists) had the same with Geared Unicycle Hub's.
I hope it's a little fun  :)

Pete (NZPeterG), I'll occasionally prune the intermediate entries to keep the thread more wieldy and easier to follow.

Best,

Dan.

084996 - Matthew Newton - Matt2matt2002 - Aberdeenshire, Scotland UK 2012 Thorn Raven

Is that right? That hub must have been sat on a shelf (or another bike) for a while...

Humm, yes. It's got me quite worried. I am going to make enquiries. Anyone any ideas?
Anyone know how the hubs are numbered? By year?
Must say it runs fine and looks in good condition. Bought it from a member here. I am third owner I believe.
Sits on a Thorn Raven.

Given the age of the Enduro, it is entirely possible the serial numbers are printed on a yellow-and-blue Rohloff sticker that is...no longer attached to the hub shell.

See: http://www.rohloff.de/en/testarea/news_neu/faq_detail/index.html?tx_ttnews%5Byear%5D=2006&tx_ttnews%5Bmonth%5D=12&tx_ttnews%5Bday%5D=08&tx_ttnews%5Btt_news%5D=1583&cHash=caf3f3cf68a3eb14dd8ec6e9972a7f03
Html-tagged photo courtesy Rohloff at the above link:


More recent Rohloff hubs have the serials laser-etched on the hub shells.

Best,

Dan.
