May be it was already discussed...about dropouts.

From south of France, I'm planning to have a bike built from a Chaka Pele Rohloff frame, intending some light loaded touring on mountain/forest/tow pathes (good trails, without speed when stones/holes).

I'm 80kg, and the bike would be loaded up to 20kg camping-gear, (15kg) upon Logo and (5kg) upon Tara Tubus or towing a Bob Yak trailer.

Does someone have experience or knowledge about the aluminium adjustable Rohloff OEM dropouts (I'ld get Rohloff speedhub with external gear):
- for chain tensioning (good/easy system?);
- for fitting a trailer at wheel axle such as Bob Yak (alu dropouts= enough resistant?).

hej body,

the Rohloff dropouts are great and work well. But if you have them you don't need the chain tensioner. I would chuck the luggage directly on the bike. But if you prefer a trailer it's not a problem with the Rohloff either.
Also personally I'm not a big fan of the BOB but that is a different story.

Hope that I could help you.
