The Bahookie Rohloff could be the ultimate for super-reliable off-road riding. Sharing the same versatile frame as the rest of the Bahookie, The Bahookie Rohloff comes with (as the name suggests!) a bombproof Rohloff internal gear hub (IGH). The Rohloff has the well deserved reputation as being the most reliable transmission system available. With 14 gears running inside a sealed oil bath, the Rohloff is virtually impervious to anything you or mother nature can throw at it. The 14 gears are operated from a twist shifter on the bars and changing gears can even be done while stationary.
The Bahookie Rohloff comes as standard with our Boost Shand carbon 29er rigid fork. This fork will take up to a 29x3.0" tyre.
Features include 44mm headtube for the latest generation of tapered mountain bike forks, dropper post compatible with internal stealth routing. 3 sets of bottle mounts and rack mounts make it the perfect adventure mountain bike.
For the ultimate in versatility, the Bahookie features the same drivetrain support platform as our Stoater allowing you options to run the following :
This flexibility is achieved by fitting either an EBB (eccentric bottom bracket) or standard PF30 bottom bracket in the 73mm shell. The modular PolyDrop dropouts allow fitting of different inserts to suit different drivetrains. Rohloff OEM inserts come as standard but we can also supply 135x10 Q/R dropouts, 142x12 dropouts or singlespeed dropouts at an additional cost.
The Bahookie Rohloff is also beltdrive ready (a neat splitter is concealed within the PolyDrop dropouts) if you want the ultimate in reliability and ease of maintenance.
The Bahookie is TIG welded from custom drawn Columbus Niobium tubing. As with all of our bikes, the frame is manufactured by us in our workshop in Central Scotland where we also paint and complete the final assembly.

Unless otherwise agreed, all bikes will be setup with 10mm of spacers under the stem. Stem lengths and seatpost types (layback or inline) are frame size specific to enable maximum amount of adjustability. We can provide a dimensioned drawing of final setup on request.
If you have questions about the frame size and position that suits you best, we can help. Just get in touch to discuss the fitting process and we’ll talk you through our online fitting form. If you already have fit information from a 3rd party, we can make use this too.
As all Shand bikes are built to order, we aim to ensure our bikes fit all customers perfectly – regardless of gender. Read more about how we ensure a perfect bike fit for women.
For specific fit requirements beyond our production frame sizes, we provide a custom fit service to make a bike that fits you perfectly.
All our bikes are painted to order from a standard range of 30 colours. Metallic and custom colours are also available for an additional charge – as are custom colours and one-off graphics if you’re looking for something more individual.
