Does anybody have the Focus Urban 8? I have read a few reviews, but there's not much out there about this bike. It comes spec'ed with the Alfine 8 and Gates Belt Drive. This would be used as my commuter, about 20 miles round trip, plus my wife's weekend bike. I'm also looking at the Ordea Carpe, but my wife doesn't like all those gear thingy's... . I would also use it for light offroad on some local fireroads. I used to run a cross bike, but neck issues have pushed me over to flat bars.
Some of the reviews of the belt drive have given me pause, but it seems like a perfect commuter set up. Thoughts?
