If you don’t know about Gates Carbon Drive for bicycles, here is your chance. We will be attending the Lyons-Boulder Centurion Cycling Event on July 18th. The Centurion is three events in one; a 100, 50, and 25mile ride; all types are encouraged, from seasoned racers to families. We here at Gates intend to have riders in at least two of the three categories equipped with different types of bicycles, each sporting the Gates Carbon Drive system.
What is the Gates Carbon Drive system? The system is basically two sprockets and a belt that replace a chain and chain sprockets on a bicycle. The belt is a version of our market leading Poly Chain GT Carbon belt that has been optimized for power transmission on bicycles. The sprockets are designed to mount on bicycles using standard bicycle components. We will get more into the technical aspects of the bicycle components in a later post. In the mean time, come check out some of the Gates crew at the Centurion, and demo ride a bicycle with Gates Carbon Drive!
