My bike is very new, just had a few dirty days riding on the bike. So far it is awesome. The belt is very silent (can compare it to a clean fresh oiled drive train) if the belt gets very dirty with mud and sand it makes a little scrunchy sound (but even then feels better than a chain), after few minutes spinning it is as silent like before and feels again like a very clean, fresh oiled chain drive train. That is one big advantage in my eyes.tantrumizer said:Wow, that 29er with Lefty fork sure looks distinctive, like some kind of optical illusion where someone put a spare wheel close to the camera.
Vertexto - how does the Gates go with (German winter) mud, in terms of during the ride and cleaning afterwards?
Hi TestmaenTestmaen said:Vertexto,
that is a very nice Argon. What colour is this ? Are you running a Rohloff hub ?
Do you mind me asking how tall you are ?
Thanks in advance!
My frame with slideable dropouts for singlspeed, Alfine or Rohloff (or Chaindrive if you like) it at 1,9..kg. The Argon CC for chain drive is about 100gr less. My complete bike is at 11,05 tubeless with pedals and bottlecage.Ridefastridefree said:Vertexto - I dont suppose you weighed the frame before you built it did you?
