Gates Carbon Drive Reduces Fleet Maintenance Costs
Gates Carbon Drive reduces fleet maintenance costs by eliminating the workload associated with lubricating, replacing and servicing chains. That's why leading bike share programs from China to Copenhagen to hotels and universities across the United States are equipping their share bikes with Gates belt systems. Gates makes it easy by providing technical assistance to bike share program managers seeking to source belt drive fleet bikes, and we offer design and engineering support to fleet bike manufacturers who want to add belt drives to their portfolio of offerings.
