I havent used one of their kits - but its basically a slightly less engineered rip off of the Golden Eagle system even down to the identical wheel sheave on both.

The question is if you want to go the belt route is do you want to be able to exchange gearwheels? I know that the GEBE has that option. I am not sure about this one. It looks flimsier than the Golden Eagle kit to be honest. Cutting holes in things to save weight in a cyclemotor situation is usually not the best of ideas...

Its cheaper, true but is that good pricing or is there a reason? personally having compared both, I would say the extra money is worth it for the GE kit

Thanks, just wish I had more choices for this type of kit.

Is GEBE the only one making it?

Why hasn't somebody made a knock-off?

For that matter, why isn't there a Chinese knock-off?

BAMABIKEGUY I guess is the guy that rode from BAMA to Colorado on youtube. Just search belt drive and you will find him. His drive is a 25cc Robin and I can't imagine it being that fast. The smaller kit belt will last 5000 miles with that motor. I wonder how long with the 35cc or higher. I read that they will strip off notches.
