A Deeper Look at Gates Carbon Belt Drives at Eurobike

Jonathan Weinart and Zach Krapfl spent some time with us to take a deeper look at how the Gates belts work and we discussed some of the finer details, like how long will they last and what they're actually made of. For many, the belts have been a bit of mystery and I hope this video helps to demystify this technology.

 
Thanks, Chris. Casual guys with quality information. I enjoyed the early days when we would occasionally chat on the phone about ebikes and where it was all heading.

I learned alot and will add a request to also see the rear triangle opened to replace the belt in a future video. I think Zach briefly touched the chainstay - that is another area of Gates carbon belt that has some "mystery" to it.

Thanks Scott! Same here. Things sure have evolved quite a bit since those days.

I will add it to a future tech tip video we have planned.
