Few picees for your interest and polite comment
Been loving the peregrine with an alfine, heavy but perfect for south downs way mile munching.
I had the belt kit lying around after buying off the classifieds, so figured why not try it.
Bit of a risk cutting the frame it felt beefy enough, and seems to have worked out, as everything has come together fine ish.
I say ish as the belt is a fraction too long, prob 5mm.
I originally bought the belt kit with a 25T cog, but the alfine dictated a 24T and I figured I could get away with the small difference, but seems not.
Luckily I am in Germany this weekend and gates will post my mate a shorter belt for reasonable money.
Big thanks to Ben at kinetics for the work on the S and S couple, I had always fancied an excuse for one of these, and he did a top job.
Too early for a test ride as I do not want to damage the too long belt.
Is it the future – I do not think so, but been ages since I had a project, and this fits nicely.
Popping out now in the sunshine for a pottle
