SKYELANDER ROHLOFF COCKPIT

Bars: The Skyelander Rohloff comes with riser bars, which are available in black or silver (as are the stem, spacers and seatpost). These alloy bars are 610mm wide and have a small 30mm rise.

If you’d prefer drop bars, there are a couple of options - either using Rohloff specific drop bars by Van Nicholas which have a split in the bar to accommodate the Rohloff twist shifter. Alternatively we can fit our standard Skyelander drops (the Nitto RM-013 heat treated bars), and we can fit the Rohloff twist shifter to a steerer mounted accessory bar which sits close the stem/bars for easy shifting.

Levers: the brake levers with the riser bars are Deore T610 and with drops Cane Creek V-brake specific levers

The stem: We offer both ahead and quill.

The ahead is a Zenith hollow forged AL6061-T6 aluminium stem for 26.0 mm diameter handlebar clamp. We fit the 80mm as standard but we have a range of other lengths on request.

Our standard quill stem is the Nitto Technomic Deluxe Tallux. The horizontal length is 80mm but 100mm and 110mm are also available on request. Due to the extent of the rise we tend to fit a shorter Zenith quill on smaller frames.


Grips and Tape: For flats/riser bars we tend to fit the Ergon GC1 Rohloff specific grips, with drops the Profile Design cushioned bar tape - I’ve never used such comfortable tape as this… Upgrade options include the GP3/5 grips or Brooks bar tape.
