The Future of Single Speed?

Is it the Gates Carbon belt drive system?

Ventana Mountain Bikes have produced frames in both 26" and 29er wheel size with a rear axle slide system that will come apart and allow the belt to pass through the seat stays.

So new they are yet to feature on their website
but they are essentially modified El Toro or El Commandante frames with without the EBB but now with a slider.

I have one of the first production El Commandantes already a great 29er single speed made better with the belt drive.

Positives; quicker, lighter, stronger, longer lasting, all weather mud loving, low maintenance, cool!

Negatives; less gear ratio's ATM, but with a couple more belt lengths in the pipe line to solve that.
