I'm becoming more and more enchanted with the possibility of using a Rohloff in place of my derailleur drive train. but before i sink that kind of *very serious* coin into this, i'd love to have a chance to ride one for even twenty minutes or so (to test gear changes, feel the weight distribution, and just experience the much lauded wonder or german bicycling engineering).
Is there anyone in the Eugene-metro area that has a Rohloff-equipped bike who might let me ride it around her or his neighborhood? I am, of course, trustworthy (i mean, come on, is there any other kind of Rohloff personality?), and work at UO as a professional nerd. I checked with my local cycling club, but no bites, so i thought i'd check here.
