    I suppose the belt-drive limits to one speed? I don’t see a derailleur.

    Is the belt available at an auto parts store like Napa?

    When ordering a bike what options are available?

      John,

      The belt drive is incompatible with derailleurs, but can be used with internally geared hubs to provide a range of gears.

      The belt *is* made by Gates, whose belts are readily found at places like Napa, but I seriously doubt they carry any of Gates’ bike-specific products.

      As far as options are concerned, basically everything in the bike industry is an option. If you’d like to go over all the details and relevant possibilities, feel free to get in touch!
