Default Re: Friction v.s. Chain

Either one will allow you to help the motor out by pedaling. A friction drive is more likely to slip under extreme load, so chain drive would be my personal choice for mountains. Plus friction drives can slip in dusty or wet conditions.

I've never used a friction drive though, this is just what little information I've gathered by reading for a while. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm completely mistaken.
