    I would be worried using a belt with cheap hubs. The belt ate my king hubs but thank goodness everything is rebuildable

    Gates told me for ages that the original belt drive system did not have problems and it did. The new belt drive does work better than the old one but i would steer clear of it.

    I live in Denver and just about every spot i see on the trails is run with a chain, not a belt.
