Gates has put together a five-video series explaining everything you could possibly want to know about the carbon belt drive system.  If, per chance, you don’t know what it is, it’s a lightweight, virtually maintenance-free drivetrain that’s super cool and I want one.

Check the videos here.  You’ll have to create a free user account, which is why we couldn’t embed them here and save you the hassle.

Does anyone know if any frame builders have played with elevated chainstays for belt drives? I remember from the 90’s that you could take the chains off these bikes without breaking them, which would seem to get around the issue of having to split the read triangle to get the belt in. Maybe they’re not stiff enough or something?
