Vivente bikes are built around premium steel frames with stable geometry for predictable handling under load. This frame offers you all the signature benefits of steel but with an important upgrade: Rohloff hub and Gates carbon belt drive compatibility.

The frame for 'The Gibb' would make for a fantastic custom build, given its compatibility for a Rohloff internal hub and belt drive.

In addition, this particular frameset features an eccentric bottom bracket (EBB). An EBB is one that allows you to move the normal bottom bracket, which is screwed into the EBB, forward or back so as to tighten or loosen the chain or belt. After you reach the desired tightness it is necessary to fix or lock the EBB in place. You can do this with wedges that slide up and down ramps and bear against the inside of the frame.
