long time coming

The tubing has been in my shop for about 4 years, it's finally a bike.
I'll try to get some good pictures soon, but for now these will have to do.

And, since it didn't sell on ebay, the green 29'er will be my new ride this year. But with a belt drive! I created a way to retrofit the surly dropouts to take the belt drive without needing any repaint work. Looks like it will work very well. I'll let you know. If you have a frame with Surly track dropouts and want a belt drive, I may be able to make that happen without a dropout replacement!

I think this will be great for traveling. Since this frame has S & S coupelrs already, I won't have to mess with a dirty chain when I pack it up now!

What's the advantage to a belt drive, other than just being awesome? I suppose it must be lighter...
