If you’re a successful brewery run by people who like bikes, the next step is to build trail-oriented singlespeed 29ers. In the US. With belt drives. Right?

OK, so it may not be an obvious next step, but now that we’ve got our hands on a True Temper REEB, we’re glad it’s one that Oskar Blues (home of Dale’s Pale Ale) made.  With low-key graphics and a handsome clear coat over the welds, the REEB is certainly a looker.  Until we’ve got some miles in, we’ll have to make do with sharing some photos…

That's a Gates Center-Track Carbon belt drive down there.
Mmm... weldy. The 44mm head tube will accept straight or tapered steerers.
Adjustable vertical dropouts and a detachable seatstay make the belt drive possible.
"Reeb" is "beeR" backwards.
From the good folks at Oskar Blues.

Our test bike is spec’d somewhere between the stock SFP ($4,300) and PFP ($2,900) levels.  The Colorado-made frame is available alone for $1,400 or with a belt drive, drivering, and cog for $1,650.  Four sizes are available–our large has a 24.5in top tube–and all have room for 29×2.4in tires.  More info at www.reebcycles.com.
