    Frame recomendation to fit Shimano Alfine 11 Drive train

    I'm looking to build a bike based on Belt Drive with the Shimano Alphine 11. Relaxed Commuting Geometry with Road Bike speed.....Along the line of a Trek 7.x or Specialized Sirrus frame set...

    I have the rest of the components pretty much set....just need to find a good frame....

    Surly Cross Check...you'll need the right side chainstay modified for the belt, but that's not a big deal and the CC has a great following.

    of course a frame builder can retrofit a small S&S coupler in the seat stay tube of any steel Blke you choose,
    sacrifice paint under the torch of course.. so a repaint is probably in order too .

    Co Motion In Oregon offers the Belt ready modified rear triangle frames .

    For Alfine/gates carbon drive you need:
    Breakable rear triangle
    Disk-brake mounts
    Chain tensioning system

    Look at Spot Spawl
    Santos make a Trekking Light for gates drive.
    German brand Simpel make the DailyBread, totally customisable doitall base frame.
