" When I first looked at the method that Hacking Labs devised to allow a belt drive to be used on a standard bike frame I thought, “ Wow, how come nobody else had thought of this?” In my books, that is a very good sign of a truly genius design decision.
And then you ride the belt drive… so quiet, so smooth, so clean, and so fun! It has been 4 months of continuous riding. I don’t own a car so I commute and do errands on my bike every day (over 1500 miles) and I still get a smile on my face when I jump on my bike and start to pedal.
Did I mention that a belt drive means you have no external surfaces on your bike that are oily?
The replacement of an oiled metal chain with a belt really is a life altering event!"
