Gates Carbon Drive

I have been riding a Gates Carbon Drive on a 2010 Norco Ceres bike for about 2 years now. I have to agree with Frank, that the attraction of a low maintenance commuter bike was hard to resist and helped get me back on the bike to commute to work. The system is clean, silent and maintenance free. For some reason, here in the UK, hub geared bikes are not popular. Most prefer derailleur gears, even though these need adjusting if they get knocked. I wouldn't go back to a derailleur now. The carbon drive and hub gearing is a great combination.
