Anybody with recent experiences with this particular bike? Seems like an okay deal for a belt drive bike.
The Sturmey_archer chain drive IGH is better when it comes to gear inches,... I understand it's not a belt drive, but it's much more well spaced out. I like it for the ability to compete with full sized bikes on the top end.
The belt drive model is: 22.6 ( 1st gear ) - 69.2 ( 8th gear ) gear inches
The chain drive model is: 28 ( 1st gear ) - 91 ( 8th gear ) gear inches
