English Cycles custom 29er:

This is for a rider in Wales, so lots of rain! To make the bike as low maintenance as possible we have the Gates belt drive (with Niner EBB for tensioning and split dropout for belt installation), the Shimano Alfine 11spd internally geared hub, sealed frame tubes and a White Brothers rigid fork. As a nod to comfort we have Notubes rims with big Schwalbe tires – 2.4″ in front and 2.25″ in back. Run tubeless these can be set around 20lbs of pressure for good cushioning and traction. Helping out is an Eriksen titanium seatpost, with the frame designed to have the post close to it’s maximum extension, for cantilevered passive suspension. Cranks from The Hive and bar/stem from FSA round out the components. Total weight with saddle and pedals is under 24lbs.
