Trek Sawyer 29er SS build
I scored a new Sawyer (Gary Fisher design) all-steel rigid frame on fleabay.
Planning on building it as a Gates carbon belt-drive singlespeed 29er. Might take me a few months, due to coin, or shortage thereof. So far, I've got the frame/fork, handlebars (Bonty Crivitz, 25 deg backsweep), and a Selle Italia Man Gelflow saddle.
I've been toying with the idea of getting Spinergy wheels with colored spokes. Thinking of blue or yellow?
Any opinions welcomed. I've already got more blue components in mind, such as a blue Cane Creek headset, Portland Design Works speed metal blue grips, and Avid Elixir XO disc brakes in black & blue. The seat is black. Thinking of getting a Ti seatpost. Plus the Gates belt has blue on the inside too. The frame is satin dark gray.
Right now it's just a paper build. Plenty of time to make the coolest choices, but would appreciate more input from
Not sure about the gear ratios either.
Any other belt drivers out there?
