Belts set to replace Bike Chains? Answered
Apparently belt driven bikes were produced a few years ago by specialist bike companies but they are now about to hit the mainstream.
These belts have an advantage over chains because they are tougher, last longer, aren't dirty or greasy, their quieter and they weigh a lot less.
the only drawback is the price, Trek has unveiled, the District and the Soho, will run you $930 and $990, respectively. but then again all new tech is expensive :D
