    No, I used Henry James until they switched suppliers. Now I use Long Shen.

    I wish I was a better photographer, because this frame looked a lot sweeter in person than in my crappy photos. Did the paint all in powder, which is why it's only a simple 2 color.

    Sweet bikes Nessism! You also have very good taste in saddles, I have been building a collection of those over the past few years so that I am never without one. Nice builds.

    650B belt-drive

    Here is the first and only mountain bike that I have built as a custom builder. Ian wanted to try out the Carbon Drive System's belt-drive and here it is.

    Im about 5'9" tall. The rims are 700c (mavic A719) - the bottom bracket is about 23" off the ground (seat height ~51" off the ground)

    I would provide some geometry, but all the plans are just hand drawn 1x1 on paper - which are lurking somewhere. I dont remember almost any of the exact measurements off hand.

    Right on. May be the only purpose built tall touring bike I've ever seen. Cool.

    Cool! What did you use for chainstays?

    How do you like the height? I had a touring bike with a high BB at one point, at least 10 inches lower than yours. Still gave me a feeling of being up high and seeing everything. I slightly resented it when it got really windy.

    It does more than tour

    Are those 650s on the bamboo frame? Also, glad to see the dynamo/planetary geared hubs.

    Built in June of '04, this one is affectionately called my "Beater", implying it's a daily a driver and NOT a parade bike. Weighs a smidgen over 11 kg.
