Custom bike builder Erik Noren of Peacock Groove Bicycles looks like a tough guy posing with his bedazzled eBike at the North American Handmade Bike Show. Truthfully, he’s really a kitten. Noren’s retro-themed electric bike is an homage to turn-of-the-century motos, but with a modern twist: a Shimano STEPS electric drive with the Gates Carbon Drive belt system.
Fifield Electric Bikes also displayed an eBike with Shimano STEPS and Gates belt. This Chatham frame equipped with Alfine Di2 electronic shifting was created by builder Ted Wojcik. Check out the Gates Flickr photostream for more pictures.
