Rohloff and rims

Posted By: Colin Stanley
Date: 4 February 2008

Just had our second spoke breakage on a 26in DT Swiss rim married to a Rohloff.
There was discussion some time ago about a rim from Rigida which might be a better proposition as it allows better alignment of the spoke and nipple. Just looked on the Rigida and the St John Street Cycles websites and there is a double wall rim called the Andra 30 which can be offered with specially cut spoke drillings which they claim are optimised for high flange hubs like Rohloff. The spoke to nipple alignment with the DT Swiss rim is dreadful and I think this has caused the spokes to fail at their thread washout inside the nipple.
Can anyone shed any light on this, or has anyone got this Rigida/Rohloff combination and has it been successful?
