Feb 12.14 – Davids Super Commuter
Here’s Davids belt and Rohloff driven, hydraulic braked XCR super commuter. This will be seeing daily commute duties and light touring as well as being put to use out in the field. Davids a GP and the bike will be used for him to make his rounds on, so reliability was a key issue here.
The Gates Carbon drive system was used, coupled to a Rohloff hub for dependable year round use. Throw in a mix of solid finishing components and with the Gator Hardshells breakdowns will be very rare on this machine.
To keep belt tension Paragon Rocker dropouts have been used with the brushed fillet brazed Columbus XCR tubing. There’s even clearance in there for up to 35c tyres for when David wants to go a little further than his daily rounds and hit some rougher tracks…
