The purple, rohloff’d, belt-driven, stans’d Song 29

Chinese tradition says purple is the philosopher’s color…

…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.

  1. It’s hard sometimes to see these bikes go away on the UPS truck- I get attached!

    Matt, the TMU works much better right side up.
    Rhino- the block thingy is the aforementioned Matt’s design… active masonry, in a nutshell. I won’t do the explanation justice so you might check out his blog. mgindle.wordpress.com
