Carol’s Rolhoff Touring

another special customer- my mom! lots of features on this one. the 650b wheel size allowed for perfect sizing and a horizontal top tube. it also allows everything to pack down that much further once the s&s couplers have been unfastened. in the interest of providing a large range of gears and ease of packing/unpacking, i chose to go with the rolhoff hub. with proper maintenance, these things will last forever, and there is no external dérailleur to get damaged in transit. the dropouts and fork ends are vintage vitus, as are the fork blades and chainstays. the head tube lugs are nos nervex, a rare find! large metal flakes in the paint are the icing on the cake- sparkle finish!
