Mike’s Alfine Hub, Belt drive and S&S update

Posted on

Here is a photo of us at the 10th annual "Tour Dem Parks, Hon" in
Baltimore, MD USA, a few weeks ago, 35 urban miles.  In total about
3000 miles or so since build.  Bike rides smoothly and corners
responsively.  The belt squeaks when dirty, but then I ride through a
puddle and we're fine.  With the Sussex Versa VR8 brifter,  I go
through a gear cable every six months or so, but otherwise, running
great.  I opened the Alfine gearhub a few months ago and it was
absolutely pristine inside after a wet winter.  Thanks again for a
great bike.
