- Rohloff Speedhubs
A couple of things:
Firstly, does anyone know what oil one puts in these? Other than ‘Rohloff’ oil which is presumably some generic oil with their name on it…And also how much? Just fill it up like an old Sturmy Archer hub?! This one is pretty dry….
And secondly, does anyone have any instructions on how to replace the paper gasket and oil seal on the non-drive side? According to the Rohloff rep in the USA, they are in the back of the manual.
We’ve got a bike in with a Rohloff but they are as rare as rocking horse doo doo over here (Vancouver) and no-one has a clue about them. Plan B is to send the whole wheel down to California, but the tool and seal kit is pretty cheap to send up and I’d rather have a play 😉

Page 14 shows you how to remove the gearbox from the hub.
Just remove the paper gasket and replace it with a new one then slide the unit back into the shell.
Rohloff are now recomending that you only use 15 ml of oil. Not the 25ml the previously stated.Posted 9 years agoflamejobMember
Does replacing the gasket reduce leakage? Last time I looked there was a fair amount of gunge coming out, but what is normal?
[Edit] It’s completely normal to have a QR covered in oil according to appendix 14.
PS Mrs Flamejob is going to work in Kassel for a few months, do you think they’ll let me in to have a butchers?Posted 9 years ago
