Default Re: Advantages/disatvantage Of Friction Drive

i have a staton robin friction set up on my mountain bike "the blue mule". when it rains i push the friction roller down a little more and tighten the release nut. the system is incredibly simple and reliable. i wear a set of insulated coveralls and ride it through rain and snow. just ease up on the throttle when riding in wet conditions. another nice thing about friction is that you can switch it to another bike in about a half hour!
