The Gates Carbon Drive system is something I want to find out more about. I dream of the day of not having to clean and oil a chain, and this company seems to be doing something about it. Especially intriguing is the CenterTrack system. This is what is pictured above. It uses a center groove to keep the belt centered, allowing Gates to make thinner pulleys. Well designed product.
Let me know what your impressions are, I know that belts are strong and would probably work really well, but how do we retrofit them to an older bike that does not have a collapsable (sp) rear triangle. And how does the bike enthusiast get their hands on a set up?
I will do. I’m wondering most about retrofitting.
