Publish date:

London's Velorution has signed an exclusive distribution and service arrangement with belt drive specialists Gates Carbon Drive.

"Velorution are the perfect partner for Gates because they are urban cycling experts and have worked with belt drive bike brands, including Schindelhauer and Van Nicholas for many years,” said Chris Harris, sales manager for Gates in the UK. “With Velorution on our team we expect that many more British consumers will discover how the grease-free Gates belt drive simplifies cycling.”

To educate mechanics and consumers, Gates Carbon Drive has just released the below instructional video that details how to change a rear wheel on bikes with internally geared hubs (IGH). The tutorial provides information on rear wheel removal for Gates-equipped bikes with Shimano Alfine 8- and 11-speed hubs, Shimano Nexus 7 and the NuVinci N360 continuously variable planetary hub.

“My team at Velorution are experts in the latest bike technologies, which makes this a great partnership,” said Gretta Cole, co-owner of Velorution. “Bikes with the Gates Carbon Drive System are clean, quiet, and reliable, and they require less maintenance than bikes with chains, making them ideal for our weather and a favorite with our clientele.”

Belt drive fans will also be pleased to hear that Gates has recently expanded its product range with new 70-tooth sprocket for track bikes, as well as new 108-tooth, 111-tooth, and 125-tooth belt lengths.
