Lynskey titanium singlespeed WITH BELT DRIVE

    Newer Older

    A 12 pound titanium singlespeed road bike equipped with a belt drive from Lynskey Performance. Lynskey believes this and their singlespeed MTB are the first belt drive titanium bikes ever.

    This bike will be introduced at the 2008 NAHBS in Portland this weekend.

      Be interesting to see
      what the working life
      and replacement cost
      of the belt is

      These belts were recently standardized so the cost should come down. Not that I know what that cost is.

      Seamus, I asked Lynskey about this. The lifetime of these same belts on motorcycles is 10,000 miles and they expect similar or better life on bicycles.

      Bicycle chains are supposed to be replaced as frequently as every 1,000 miles for thin chains used on modern derailleurs.

      Excellent!
      Any idea if
      they intend to produce
      an internal geared hub version?

      or is this it?

      Don't know if Lynskey will, but at the Rohloff booth they showcased several bikes with belt drive and their 14 speed hub. Rohloff also said they plan to introduce a lighter weight speedhub this summer that will be lighter than XTR group (!). The belt last 3 to 4 times longer than chains, has comparable weight, and is no maintenance (no lubing required).

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Titanium Addict, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      Carbon Drive (apparently) makes cogs for the Alfine/Nexus range, and claims that they're interested in the Rohloff market. Rohloff also claims to be interested in the belt drive market. Neither company has, to my knowledge, produced anything yet.
      Phil Wood is, however, making a Rohloff compatible belt-drive cog. I got a few of them recently (and a matching chainring): www.flickr.com/photos/trafficbikes/3985951314/in/set-7215...
