    What kind of fork is that? Ti or steel?

    The fork is also from Spot. It is steel.

    Wow, beautiful ride.

    Tell me, what are the advantages of a belt drive? I've never seen this before.

    Do the belts stretch less than a chain or even at all?

    Are they less prone to breaking?

    Do they weigh less?

    Are they as strong as a chain - can you apply as much torque when hammering up a hill?

    I'm genuinely interested in this. Also,

    Is that a belt-specific hub you have? or is it possible to replace a Cog on a SS-specific hub with the belt drive?

    Will the belt drive replace the original bolt-on ChainRing therefore allowing re-use of crank/BB?

    @ great_big_abyss: Realize that you need a belt compatible frame, otherwise you can't get the belt to travel from outside the chainstay.at the crank, to inside the chainstay at the hub. My gut feeling is that belt drive is a solution in search of a problem. They sure do look cool though. :thumb:

    Oh right.

    I remember hearing about that somewhere else, but I guess I forgot.

    I guess I was just wondering why anyone would use a belt drive vs. a chain, if it had any inherent quality that just made it better....quieter, smoother, whatever.

    All About Belts!

    Rugged. No stretch. 3> 5 times longer lasting. Look cool!
    Quiet. No 'slap'. Single or internal gearing only.

    sweet color! if you dont mind me asking, how tall are you and what is your inseam? I'm looking at getting one of their frames and a belt drive kit but I'm torn between the MD or the LG. If they made a M/L it would be an easy call...

    Thanks!
