and finally ROHLOFF 14 Speedhub 500 ( please look this up if you don't know what it is ) ( they are about $2000 brand new ) and this one is in excellent condition.

"One of the very finest Rohloff equipped bikes on the planet"
The RAVEN makes light work of 28Kg loads and will carry 40Kg. (The largest sizes will carry even more)

The Raven is designed to provide a lifetime’s transport, as well as keeping the dream of that “big cycling adventure” well and truly alive!

This bike in particular is in excellent near mint condition.
Barely any scratches on it as it has not been on any tours sadly.
This is part of the reason I'm selling it as I don't think I'll ever be doing so.
This might be one of a handful that made here to North America or Canada so it's
quite a gem.

Brand new these bikes are roughly $3755 CND ( granted this one is older )
There are a few on E....bay...co...uk.. for sale
