I like your footrests, Rud

Looks like a nice day of breaking in and getting to know each other.

I'd considered a belt drive, but the cog/belt/ring combo is expensive and would continue to add up if I wanted to swap things out. Also, in order to have clearance for the belt drive chainring, you'd have to do some weird stuff to the chainstay. Scallop it, yoke it, or make some odd structural bends so the ring can clear. Nothing that Steve was particularly keen on doing given the nature of the project. And....chains work perfectly well!
