Arne's Fixie - Belt Drive and Bar Spins!

The odds of me surviving an attempted bar spin approach zero, but I am impressed with Arne's solution - though I think I would have routed the hose through the top of the steerer cap instead to avoid putting a hole in the stem.

The Paragon coupler for the dropout/seatstay is a nice low-profile way to set up the belt drive, I think. Thanks to Arne for the pictures!

Cool bike! Is that a a 26" front and 29" rear? Also, what frame color is that? Nice work!

I believe it's 700c front and rear.

Color is satin black.

Is there an internal gear on that bike, and if there is, what kind did you use? That bike is absolutely gorgeous by the way!
