    1. Yes. They are working on an IGH option: https://getsatisfaction.com/xtracycle/topics/novara_gotham_bike_compatible_with_free_radical 2. No. This is an issue

      2. No. This is an issue for Gates to sort out. They do not make a belt long enough.
      3. You could. How much modification would be required is a bigger question.
      4. Not sure.
      5. If the pictures on the Xtracycle website are any indicator, yes.
      6. Hills, loads carried, and riding style make this a tough one to answer, so I am not going to. I also have no idea.
