Takes a little time to get used to, but I'm riding a Rohloff bike for over 7 years now and can't hardly remember how it was before :D

Overall weight of the bike above is 11.1 KG without pedals
Feels pretty light and agile on the trails

Nice, but the unmatched rotors would trouble me. Oh, and the Rohloff too.
Do they do it is a recumbent? Hahaha.
