    Anyone seen this?

    Absolutely amazing!

    I'll wait 5 years until I can afford one.

    My question is how did they get the into the frame if it is a 1 piece belt.

    Just saw it.

    I made that assumption from just the pic which can be quite deceiving....

    Too much. I think 3500 euros for the whole thing.

    What matters though is that geared cranksets have existed for some time, this is just the first guy to make a fixie/belt drive out of it.

    It means we will start seeing this more often and it will start getting cheaper.

    This guy didn't make it, he just bought one from schlumpf and added the coupler to the frame.

    I like the heel clicking for the change. Cool looking.
