Interesting!  Why did he not use internally geared hubbage, do you think?

He said I'll probably eventually build up a set of wheels with an internally geared hub. Main reason I didn't do that so far is that I like riding singlespeed, and this allows me to swap wheels back and forth between this and my actual road bike."

I have an elevated stay frame I toying with converting to a belt drive. I was going to use an Alfine 11 hub with a 2 speed Patterson transmission crank. Throw some fenders and a rack on it and you'd have the perfect Portland commuter. Plenty of gears and a weather sealed drive train. A total waste here in the desert, but still kind of cool...

Matt built this one just because he needed another toy.

I like the looks of this bike.  I love those wheels.  And there is some funkiness going on with that bottom bracket area.  I like it.

 

As to the OP, FSOG...I love that bike as well.

That gets the chain stay up because you don't have a magic link in the belt.

All the more reason to build it!

he used a PF30 BB shell with an eccentric bearing system. 

The frame is a handmade CF frame using a Nishiki Alien design.

He's building another similar to this, but it will use a Di2 Alfine group set. This bike will be on display at NAHBS later this year.
