…and a lot of thought went into this bike. Rick in Boulder will be riding this one soon, with all the aforementioned goodies along for what should be a very low maintenance ride. It will ship Thursday. We might be making a special “belt drive” version of the flex plate for this one.
the purple color was inspired by the palate of the early 90’s Bridgestones. Unfortunately, I used flash on these photos which tends to “blue” photos.
we added a brace in front of the sliders to counteract the added torque of the Speedhub. NoTubes built the wheelset, which is a Rohloff OEM2 rear hub, with a polished Hope Pro II front hub. Both are laced to Arch 29 rims.
