    We the people ... Phil Wood Belt Drive hub

    https://www.philwood.com/products/hubspgs/belthubs.php

    Anyone have experience with these? Looks like a WI FW in the center.

    EDIT: Digging around the Phil Wood site more shows me that hey are making drivetrain parts for belts also, is this new? I thought Gates had this pretty much on lockdown?

    They can also be produced to fit onto a Shimano-compatible freehub body, for a thead-on freewheel, for Shimano Nexus/Alfine hubs, and for Rohloff hubs

    The Phil alloy parts do not have the Gates coating on it, and without that coating, the cogs will wear out super fast. As or the steel parts, they look pretty!

    So the front chainring would wear out very fast? Can this coating be applied to the parts?

    The larger cogs have more belt wrap and usually do not wear out as fast as the smaller rear cogs. The coating? Buy the [URL="http://www.carbondrivesystems.com aka Spot cogs.

    I hate to change the subject, but I couldn't help noticing something on the thru-axle front hub in the background. I have a Phil 20mm hub like that, except the spacers on both sides of the hub do not stay in place like in this photo, instead I have to hold them in position when I'm sliding the axle through to install my wheel. It looks like they have changed the spacer and hub shell design to make wheel installation easier, which is awesome.
