There’s a new player in the UK’s commuter bike market, Milk Bikes. With sights set on a low/no maintenance bike, Milk was co-founded by a full-time bicycle commuter who wanted to “design and produce bikes to make commuting by bike better.”

The prototypes feature a Gates belt drive (with a trick “belt port” designed into the seatstay, seen above), Shimano Alfine internal-geared hub, a dynamo driven front light and mechanical disc brakes.
Belt tension is achieved via an eccentric bottom bracket. They also have a replacement dropout, that is available with or without (pictured above) a derailluer hanger to offer even more traditional chain/gear setup options.
