You don't say what brand of friction drive you have
how do ya expect a decent answer?
I presume you are going to buy a GEBE kit.....
I never busted a spoke on my Staton FrictionDrive robin eho35 and it
was on a bike with very crappy and weak spokes
yea, FrictionDrive in the rain is a pain but it no rain in SoCal
I have a GEBE rear belt drive competitor designed that I may bring out soon.

If 1 or more spokes pop will that effect my wheel pulley? So far with my friction drive the only bad flaws have been my clutch and the little nut and bolt that hold up the supports. I guess the drive roller is smoother but it still works fine.
