Not wide enough. Where's the 47 mm model for bikes like the Kona Dew, the Raleigh Redux, and the Priority 600?

I'll try a set, but I sure do wish that 45NRTH had also released a 650b x 47 mm...

I believe belt line is analogous to chain line. I believe it's the distance from center of the frame to center of the belt.

Belts are less forgiving of misalignment than are chains. You had...

CDX is the good stuff. It looks like you need a three-lobe CDX sprocket for the rear.

What is your front crankset like? How many arms does it have? And do you know the bolt-circle-diameter (BCD)?...

Where I live the roads are not smooth and many are dirt and gravel. The 600 is better for that. The wider tires provide comfort and traction.

I'm also not in the best of shape, and the wider...

An underrated aspect of cycling as a sport is ... that it can be enjoyed alone. I like that I can go for a ride by myself just as easily as with a group of friends.

Swapping to a higher rise bar once solved the problem for me. If you go that route, consider shortening the stem somewhat at the same time. In my case, the added 10 - 15 mm of rise (I don't remember...

Yes, and I LOVE that low-volume pumps are a thing. Fewer strokes to get the air in, and the range on the gauges is a better match for the pressures I'm actually using.

FWIW, my approach is to turn my bars 180 degrees in both directions. I want enough slack for that to be able to happen without any concern.

I love what Jamis has done with that bike. Road plus tires. Clean lines in the frame design. Geometry seems on point. 1x gearing. Hydro brakes. I also find it to be an exciting design.
