Yup, you read that right. Phil Wood has released some photos of a custom hub shell for Rohloff 14 Speedhub internals. For most people the standard 32 hole Rohloff is sufficient. If you are hauling heavy loads, or building the the hub for a tandem, it may not be. Here's a new option. Phil says these will be available in 24,28,32,36,40 and 48 drilling, and will be available in anno colors. Bottom line, it's stunning.
People have been asking for 36h or more drillings from Rohloff for years. Especially for tandem use, I think it makes a lot of sense. Rohloff claim that with the larger hub shell and 2 cross spoke lacing make up for that, and it probably does. Still, when I built my Rohloff up for my tandem I would have picked 36h over 32h just because.
I'll look for more info on pricing, Rohloff Warranty, availability and any other details I can find out. Phil and Rohloff, seems like a match made in heaven to me.
