If you’ve never heard of them then this video is a great introduction to Belt Driven Bicycles. Basically a Belt Driven Bicycle is a standard bicycle where the chain has been replaced with a belt. The main benefits are that these belts don’t need to be lubed which makes riding a lot cleaner especially for commuters.

No more putting your pants legs in your socks! Other benefits include no stretching of the belts like with chains. When chains stretch with use you’ll find that your bears will start to wear out unevenly resulting in your gears jumping and slipping. These belts don’t stretch and also don’t wear out the gears.

At this stage they only run on single gear bikes, but hey that’ll just make you stronger. Happy Cycling…
