Thanks for the email.

The rear dropout is too narrow for a geared hub. The rear dropout is only 95mm on the ROME.

Thanks!

for going and being human.
Yes 95mm is too narrow for any gears. I know SA has been doing a 120mm 8sp hub, and they will have an announcement of a new hub at the Taipei trade show.

Thanks,
Yan
