Belt drives have been out there for a while and getting some really good reviews so we thought we'd build one up as a Haifa Commuter. I think we're hooked. Our Gates Belt drive bike was designed around a simple and tough custom frame with super short stays for the downhills of Haifa and a Fixie Inc bracket for easy installation. Thanks to Holgar at Fixie for the piece' it's really simple and effective. Tubeset is a Columbus Life with uber simple lugs. The bike rides great and super smooth.
