I'd like a Rohloff but they are too expensive for a bike that will only get used on occasion. Also if a Rohloff is three times more reliable than an Alfine, you can but three Alfines for the price of a Rohloff. No doubt the Rohloff is a better product with better aftersales, but I can't justify the cost.
'The Rohloff will go from bike to bike once you're addicted
All I'm trying to say is that an Alfine will fail and a Rohloff will last.
In my case a Rohloff will outllast 100 Alfine hubs, for me that's a bargain
