45-Day Belt Drive Maintenance

Belt Drive

It’s been 45 days since I installed the Gates CenterTrack drivetrain on my commuter, so I figured it was time for some maintenance. Here’s the process:

  1. Roll the bike outside
  2. Hose off the belt
  3. Wipe off the water with a towel
  4. Roll the bike inside

Grand total time invested: approximately 5 minutes. A properly set-up belt drive is truly a low- to no-maintenance commuter drivetrain. Good stuff.
