This is from Road Bike Review’s coverage of the NAHBS show. At first this seems like a lot of work for the sake of creating a “righty”… but the more you look at it, I think it has some practical application, especially for bikes with a belt drive. The split in the frame to allow you to replace the belt is an obvious weak link.
We just recently got in a spot mountain bike with the gates belt drive. Man, is it smooth. Somewhere down the road, I think belt drive bikes with internally geared hubs make a bunch of sense.
In the mean time, this is jest a cool bike to look at and the NAHBS is a great venue for these smaller builders to get some attention.
