Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
Is the riveting tool available? If so, how much does it cost?
Hi Em, The Riveting Tool is available and you can find it for sale on our product page. It costs $29 USD. Cheers!
Are horizontal adjustable dropouts needed? How is tension maintained?
At the moment, hotizontal dropouts, eccentric bottom bracket, or another form of tensioning is needed. We plan on releasing a Tensioner Pro for vertical dropouts around summer. Cheers!
So only someone with an internal geared rear hub can use you products? It seems you have stopped making the single speed version.
Hello Dean. Yes you are correct at the moment. We are doing a rolling release of different compatibility with hubs. We will be developing a standard freehub sprocket and then a thread on freewheel and fixie compatible kit. You can keep up to date with the progress in our emails or contact us to ask more questions.
Have you designed them to go on bmx bikes
Unfortunately, we are still developing a potential belt drive for bmx bikes. You can stay updated with our new releases via our mailing list or website blog. Cheers!
Hello it would be interesting to know if I could run the belt also with a Gates rear sprocket, because a 30 T sprocket is too big for my Brompton frame, Cheers
Unfortunately, we are not compatible with any of Gates sprockets. We utilize a wider 14mm belt compared to their 12mm belt and we are not compatible with their Centertrack design. We plan on releasing smaller sprockets in the future so keep an eye out!
What is the chain, err belt line with a Rohloff system?
The belt line for the Rohloff system and our belt drive is 54.7mm (center of frame to center of belt). Cheers!
Hi, is it a special riveting tool or will any riveting tool do the trick?
Our Riveting Tool is specially designed for our Rivets. Unfortunately we do not know of any other Riveting Tools that would work. However, depending on your location, a local bike shop may have the Riveting Tool for you to borrow.
Can you purchase the Split Belt Pro Belt and only the belt?
Yes you can! On our products page there is an option for ordering just a replacement belt. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a custom order for you as well. Cheers!
Have you tested with ebikes of various power and torque, and if so do you have a max motor power / torque the belt can safely support?
Our belt drive is rated to a continuous torque of 90Nm. Most standard mid-drives (Bosch, Shimano Steps, etc.) will work with our belt drive!
Any plans for smaller front belt ring as I am a bikepacker adventurer? Having a vertical Dropout tensioner and a smaller front belt ring, I would have bought the kit immediately with an extra belt of course. 😁
Our Tensioner Pro for vertical dropouts is currently in development and we hope to have to available early 2021. Smaller front beltrings are also in the plans but those won't come until a bit later as we have a few other projects first. If you sign up for our mailing list we send out all release updates there!
Will you be making the split belt compatible with most ebikes very soon, with emphasis on a compatible the front sprocket based on frame shape?
Great question! Yes we are working hard on this, and hope to have many more ebike belt drives available.
What are you looking for specifically?
Is it possible for me to adjust the length of the belt?
We do not recommend adjusting the length of the belt yourself since it takes some precision to not damage the carbon fiber cords. If you need a new belt length please email us at email@example.com and we can help you out!
