Thanks for your posts guys.

Stephan: I've also been using an LX setup on my current bike and I have found it good. You're right though, I need to test ride a bike with a rohloff hub to see about the noise, although I don't think that it would bother me.

And just to make a correction - the Thorn Raven Tour (Thorn Bikes )only comes equipped with the Rohloff. If I wanted a similar or lesser priced model from them with an XT setup then I'd be looking at their Sherpa model, but once I calculated the prices with the setup that I want on both of them there was something like 200-300 pounds difference. So there is a difference in price.
