  5. Gnipgnop Says:

    How does the belt get replaced as it goes around the frame? Does the frame or belt come apart?

    Gnipgnop: The rear drop out comes off and there is a slot between the chain stay and seat stay where the belt slips through. Click through to Arleigh’s other pics from the link at the bottom of her post here. There are some good views of the drop out.

    Thanks for photos arleigh
    I’m just curious when you look at Dexter how many Districts do they say are available? Hint: none estimated shipping date July 9

  12. Arleigh Says:

    Prphoto :

    We have had this district on back order for 6 months. All the Districts that came in on this shipment were allotted to stores. The due date you see is if you place an order today through dexter, not if you have had them on back order.

  13. prphoto Says:

    Thanks for the clarification. Any chance you back ordered a Soho?

  14. Arleigh Says:

    Yep, we plan on stocking both Soho’s and the District

  15. prphoto Says:

    Hope the Sohos show up soon too. Our rep says we should get our Districts “soon”. We back-ordered about 3 months ago. I would like to know if you can “ratchet” the belt that is can you make it slip? I think GT told me last year at Sea otter that he rode the Spot at demo days (Interbike) and it did have some slippage. GT can you correct or affirm this? I know this isn’t rocket science Gates has been making belts for a 100 years and bikes don’t generate as much torque as some of their other applications.

    I want to meet bicycle riders in Leesburg, Florida.
    Good Luck to you all!

    I’ve ridden the District it’s it a nice ride. I love the belt drive. My LBS has a 60CM, which is too big for me, but still had fun testing riding it.. Good stuff!
