The rider was looking for a rugged commuter bike that would be efficient on his daily trips to work, but would also offer the versatility to enjoy longer tours on the weekend and even a few cycling-oriented vacations.

Belt drive systems from Gates Carbon Drive offer a multitude of advantages over traditional, chain-driven drivetrains: Belts do not rust or require lubrication, offering year-round reliability with minimal mess and virtually no upkeep. You can simply wipe ‘em down after a messy ride and immediately be ready to roll again—no chain cleaner or removal necessary. Belts also last 5-10x longer than most chains and don’t stretch. As a result, belts and sprockets tend to wear at the same (significantly slower) rate.
