I didn't see this posted yet and thought some of the IGH lovers might enjoy this. No details yet, but it's a promising sign. :thumbsup:

As in, 170 etc?
Or, like 29er specific grips?
Holy cow, the material cost and price to ship all that weight alone must cost a fortune.
Current Rohloff hub shell above. Prototype in first post. I can't say how much wider it is than the normal 135mm hub.
Since the internals don't need more space and this is an exercise in just widening the hub it wouldn't be crazy to offer 170mm and 190mm shells.
That would be great...I'm not holding out hope given how long it took for Shimano to almost put out a real response to SRAM's XX1/X01.Finally. Now if Shimano comes out with some 170 and 190 Alfines, you non-Pugsley fatbike owners out there can finally run IGHs for a reasonable price.
Sturmey-Archer have been doing that for 100 years...You mean inside with the delicate gears and oil bath? That makes no sense at all.
