Well there you go, Taiwan made and distributor and retailer margins on all the Surly/Salsa QBP brands .
yea a Rohloff will have an Up front cost *, but once that is behind you will be good for a very long time,
with a bit of regular oil-changes and the occasional replacement cog .. it will go in any 135 wide
* found a 2nd hand hub for $800 ..
and a whole 3rd hand trekking bike with one , for $2K..
