    Nice. That's gonna be a beastly beauty.

    My ECR is finally enroute. Due next week. Pure murdered-out darkness, although that red Rolly was definitely tempting.

    And today my 42 x 20 turned up (thanks on here for the guidance)





    Just the Ti frame to wait for now

    That's gonna be a sick bike. I have a rohloff disc hub cap and I just need a hub to put it on.

    Can you post closeup photos showing where the frame is split for the belt-drive and how the torque arm/OEM/OEM 2 plate is fitted on the NDS?

    Here's the frame split. Don't have one of the NDS Rohloff plate yet, but will try to capture one yet this weekend.

    Thanks--I don't think the split seat-stay came with the frame.

    Yep, split seat-stay doesn't come as a default with ECR frame.

    Anyway, here is NDS photo of my hoffed ECR:

    To utilize ECR's Rohloff-specific feature, you will have to have this axle plate (TS OEM2):

    My ECR + Rohloff combo is with a chain since belt would not be a robust solution on my use (rock rubbing , tree branches between belt&beltring&etc)

    I hope that this pic will show, how OEM 2 plate is attached to the frame:

    So from the previous NDS pic, OEM 2 plate's mouth is biting that lowest bolt under brake caliber bolts.

    That's a beaut Mangoman!!! I bobbled back and forth from the ECR and the 14' Salsa Fargo, in the end the Fargo won out. Cycle Monkey is building the wheels for it now, and I am seriously considering having a splitter installed to try out the belt drive....

    Eager to hear how it goes for you all!

    Thanks! Riding around the beach and back bay areas yesterday, it was nice to not have sand stuck to chain lube. Definitely glad I did the belt and encourage you to go for it.

    I've been thinking about this same setup. Curious to hear how you like it?

    My bad. I meant to include the quote. I was referring to the Fargo, though I would imagine the ECR is awesome, too

    I think Retrotec/Inglis does the frame split work for CycleMonkey.
