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.
