We don’t need belt drives!

It caught quite a bit of attention yesterday when BMXNews.com posted an article and video (below) of Donny Robinson testing a belt drive, with news of the UCI clearing the way for belt drives to be allowed in UCI-sanctioned events for 2018. We could have easily gotten Rennen’s George Costa in on this update to go into detail and get all technical but after I made a post on facebook it opened up a sizable debate on the pros and cons of the belt drive. At the end of the day, we as an industry, should focus on the image, current culture and accessibility of our sport in today’s times & get more kids back on BMX Bikes rather than spending so much energy on attempting to recreate the wheel, literally.
