Something is not right here. Go to Royal Supply and try them. But if you are in Hawaii I don't know what the shipping would be because these guy only ship UPS.These are not Kevlar--as I said GEBE has a proprietary agreement with Gates--that must be part of the agreement--you have to order a huge number of belts before they can make them available to you.Edit/Update: So I heard back from Gates Belts, and here is the email I was sent.
I am currently trying to source these belts as well, I went to the manufacturer website first. Tried the number string printed on the side of the belt, nothing. Measured the belt and counted the teeth, selected the proper category... not there. I am emailing them now to see if I can special order them.
Edit/Update: Here's the scoop via email from Gates Belts
The 1635-5M-09K belts are considered a Made-to-Order item. They have to be ordered in lots of 39 and will be delivered at that quantity + or - 10%. The price is $15.99 each and there is a 6 week lead time.
If you are interested in purchasing them, please let me know.
So that's where that lands, $630 ish for 39ish belts. =/ Wish I had the money to buy them.
hi how good is this belt compared to gebe belt.You can buy the identical belt made by Gates but it is made with fiberglass cords instead of kevlar from royalsupply.com for the GEBE for $13.80
Plug 92932636 into the sku/part number search bar on royalsupply.com's website.
I am surprised Gates will ship USPS. I was informed by Royal that Gates is the original shipper and only uses UPS. I will look into this matter.FFV8: First belt failure was the belt simply not catching on the drive ring enough, it kept slipping despite being dry and oil free. The second belt failure was one edge shredded. I guess I need to go out and bend the mounting brackets so the don't put pressure on the axle nuts.
Albula: I have the same GEBE wheel, with drive ring already attached.
Also getting the fiberglass belt from Royal supply would have been an additional $45! Holy ****... The same belt directly from gates can be shipped to Hawaii via USPS for $3.50. and you get a per belt discount if you buy 10. I'm going to get one belt now to test it out, depending on how it performs I may order a larger batch.
