  1. Wow, Rolhoff, Son dynamo hub, belt, S+S couplers… it has every gimmick on 😉 You are becoming one of the major experts on belt drive I guess. Since you still build bikes with them, I guess you feel confident about them on the long term too, don’t you ?

    I’m a bit surprised to see a rear rack but no front rack. I’m a huge fan of big handlebars bags for quick access to random stuff during rides. Do you build/mount racks for them too ? From what I understood it requires to adapt the geometry of the bike to keep a nice behaviour with this kind of load. Would this be an issue for you ?

    In any case, nice job. I love how you kept the overall design light and clean despite all the options.

    • Hi Xavier, glad you like this one too!

      We’ve built a number of bikes with Gates drive on them, and so far we like the Center track belt they make. We’re not entirely sure about them in the long term, the bikes we’ve built have been for customers who really wanted the Gates drive, no matter what. Once those customers have put some miles on their bikes, we’ll let you know about their long term viability.

      This customer actually has a front low rider rack they’ll be using. Since we’re shipping the bike to him, we didn’t have it for the pictures. The front bag can change the handling of the bike, so we design a different trail number into the frame geometry. It does mean that you need to always ride with some serious weight on the front or you change the handling characteristics especially at speed.

      Thanks for the comment, as always, and I’m glad you like the clean look of this Rodriguez!
