    Tools And Parts For Gates Belt Drive

    I recently purchased a spot brand ss belt drive, love the bike but it has a rear hub problem, skips, pops and creaks, I need ro remove the cog to inspect or replace the rear hub but can not find anyone who sells the belt whip for removal. If any one has any info that would be great. I have tried to get hold of both spot and gates but so far no luck

    Thanks

    as far as the skipping and popping, a STRAIGHT belt line is VERY important. it could be the hubs as well. most new hubs needs some attention after they have few miles on them as teh bearings and lock nuts seat into place.

    I'm getting frightful creaks and pops from my Spot crank, so check that, too. Something to do with the clamping bolts on the non-drive side. Still sorting that out.

    Belt whip: I faked it by using a steel bar with two pegs. Think of it like a steel ruler with a peg at 1/2" and one at about 3". Stick the pegs into the cog "lattice work" to hold it while turning the lockring.

    Works fine. A pin spanner also works well.
