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....
Check out the Civia Bryant.
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.
US seller: Peter White Cycles, UPS'd to your door.
He will custom order the parts pick and build up.

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 .
Life is a fun ride
Anybody have a picture and or parts list of this build/mod? I have a CC that I might consider modifying... Thanks.

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