At eurobike Rotor announced hubs. Pretty attractive: pretty light (200g rear), a "clutch" freewheel and also a 2:1 version, which interests me the most. Photos only show the normal version which looks like regular, even narrow spacing on the nds. Will try to find out if the 2:1 has a different more outboard position for the NDS flange.

Really excited to see these in person as well. Interesting to say the least.

I love when "hub" companies go through all the effort to make something new and totally forget to think about things like bearing placement (why is NDS bearing so far from the dropout?) and flange spacing (huge gap between right flange and freehub). I'd wager that hub is center to right of about 16.5 to 17mm.

I wish I was wrong.

Not the best angle, but it's a pic I have on file. Smaller gap between right flange and cassette stop. Also look at how the left bearing is right at the end of the axle. Forget comparing internals, these are easy fixes.

Those are nice

Looks like Rotor just try new design on pawls - they forget about complete wheel.
