Frames from £1,595, Full bikes from £3,995

The Stoater Rohloff is designed around the Rohloff Speedhub, aiming to provide reliability and maintenance-free riding, perfect for long rides, touring or regular commuting. Disc brakes provide the stopping power (hydraulic brake options are available) and the chainstay mounted rear disc brake allows for rack and mudguards eyelets. Clearance for tyres up to 45mm is also possible.

Gates Carbon Belt Drive

The Stoater Rohloff comes as standard with a Gates Carbon Belt Drive system instead of a traditional chain, belt tension is adjusted using our innovative PF30 EBB solution. Rear dropouts can be changed to enable use of single speed or traditional derailleur drivetrains making this a truly versatile bicycle for every adventure.

We are specialists in the design and build of Rohloff compatible frames. Rohloff are renowned the world over as the leading manufacturer of internal geared hubs. Being fully sealed from the dirt, the Rohloff Speedhub is an exceptionally reliable unit making it ideal for touring, daily commuting or everyday riding where reliability and the promise of extremely low maintenance are key.

The Rohloff Speedhub does away with the need for a front derailleur and has fourteen gears that cover the range of a typical derailleur gear setup. Designed around the Rohloff Speedhub the Stoater Rohloff has an Eccentric PF30 Bottom Bracket to provide an elegant solution for easy belt/chain tensioning.

We are an approved supplier of Gates Carbon Belt Drive systems, so can provide a belt drive with your Rohloff build for improved maintenance and a clean, lubricant-free drivetrain. Our frames have been stiffness tested for torsional rigidity ensuring accurate alignment of the belt under heavy pedaling or touring loads.

All of our beltdrive bikes are fitted with the newest CDX (CentreTrack) belt systems with the rear sprocket fitted in the factory by Rohloff.

To maintain the integrity and strength of the belt system, the belt itself cannot be broken in order to fit into the bike. To manage this, all of our Stoater frames come with a ‘splitter’ integrated within the rear dropout to allow belt drive fitting and removal. This future proofs your frame if you think you may want to fit a beltdrive later.


The Rohloff factory shifter is designed for use with flat bars and will not fit round the bends of a drop bar making it unsuitable for use with traditional roadbike handlebars. Instead, we fit the US made Co-Motion Rohloff shifter that works across a wide range of drop bars with a 31.8mm stem clamp. The simple two-piece design fits easily onto the top of the bars and incorporates a double O-ring seal to keep things working smoothly in wet and dusty conditions. The bigger diameter grip section also makes the shifting action lighter than the standard shifter.

The Co-Motion Rohloff drop bar shifter is also available to purchase separately in our online shop.
