Civia Bryant: High-Speed, Hassle-Free Commuting


Bryant Belt Alfine
Designed for mid to long-distance rides, the Bryant is our take on high-speed, low-maintenance commuting. As everyday riders, we wanted a bike that is fast, efficient and ready to roll. We didn’t want to waste precious time messing with a slipping derailleur or lubing a rusty chain. That’s why we crafted the Belt Alfine build around a Gates Carbon Drive belt and Shimano’s Alfine rear hub. Wipe it down once in a while and you’re good to go. The belt provides reliable, maintenance-free performance in all conditions.

The Bryant’s geometry is engineered for a fast, responsive ride even when you load up with panniers, packs and other things. Built with our proprietary split rear dropout, the frame accommodates a traditional derailleur drivetrain or belt drive. No matter which build you choose, the Bryant delivers performance you can count on and will leave you counting the hours till you ride again.

I'd be interetsed to know more about the Sugino crankset and BB set up you used on this version of the Bryant. Its quite an art to match cranksets BB and spacers to the correct beltline & I'd be interested to know more...
