Belt Drive

Postby Sparx » Fri May 24, 2013 9:03 am

I have an Avanti Inc 3 with Gates carbon belt drive. I am struggling to figure out how to re-fit the belt after taking the wheel off. According to Gates you are not supposed to 'walk' the belt back on. By this I take it to mean putting the belt partially on the chain wheel and turning the cranks. This is what I have been doing however I did notice a bit of fraying on the belts teeth.

Any ideas?

Here is Gates' instructional video on installing the belt:
Hope that helps.
