Internal gear hub and and belt transmission alternative to Santos Race Lite

1st post! Gretings to all fellow forum members.

I'm looking for recommendations... What similar bikes/setups are "out there" that are not as "over the top expensive" as the Santos Race Lite?

Similar race/gravel/cyclocross inspired geometry with a "everyday workhorse", low maintenance and easy to use spirit?

With an internal gear hub and belt transmission? Mudguards and rack-ready, of course. Preferably built in Europe.

I still can't post any links or pictures but, you can easily find what I'm talking about.

Am I asking too much? Just shoot!

Any and all ideas welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Greetings,

Get a belt drive friendly frame (like Soma Wolverine). Build up from there. Rohloff is like $1500, so maybe you can downgrade to an Shimano Alfine 11 IGH instead. I don't know the deets on Soma's European availability though. But it could be a good option, and a shop can build up for you with everything else you spec out!
