So I'm looking to build/buy a bike for general putting around town, going fast on my own time and not being terribly expensive.
So I start doing research and come up with a couple things:
Now the first two I can find (and I don't even care that much about Steel vs Aluminum) but the last one is proving harder to find. There are belt drive models with discs, and even steel, but they are either much too much expensive, or they aren't made for anything approaching performance.
I really like the concept of a belt drive (minimal maintenance, quiet, no derailer) but can't quite seem to make it all come together. There were a few Norcos made a couple years ago that fit the bill but they are discontinued and I can't find used models or even frames online.
Is it even worth it to keep looking?
If I can't find one my idea is basically to buy either a Norco Indie (Drop) (If I can get it shipped to the US) or try to build up a Soma Double Cross Disc by buying parts on ebay and such.
