Gates Carbon Drive Timing Belt System FAQ

Benefits?


Will it fit?

    Know these 3 things to determine fitment.

1.  FRAME LENGTH - most important!

        METHOD A - Tension Point Attainment - Simple!

                1)  Loosen eccentric so it will rotate through the complete adjustment range.

                2)  Measuring between the 2 bottom bracket axles, are you able to attain one of these numbers? 706mm, 726mm, 729mm, 739mm.
 
                If YES, proceed to Step 2 or you may further verify the frame length via Method B below.

                If NO, stop here as there is no belt system that will fit, there is no need to call asking if it will fit a 704mm, 724mm, or 737mm frame. The answer is still NO, a Gates belt system will NOT work.

        METHOD B - Adjustment Range - Best Way!
       
Write down these 2 dimensions (your frame length range).

                1)  Measure from bottom bracket center to bottom bracket center in millimeters 
                with the eccentric in the loosest possible chain position.

       
        2)  Measure from bottom bracket center to bottom bracket center in millimeters
                with the eccentric in the tightest possible chain position.
      
                 3) Do one of these FRAME LENGTH numbers,
706mm, 726mm, 729mm, or 739mm, fall between the 2 numbers determined to be your adjustment range? 

               
If YES, proceed to Step 2.

                If NO, stop here as there is no belt system that will fit, there is no need to call asking if it will fit a 704mm, 724mm, or 737mm frame. The answer is still NO, a Gates belt system will NOT work.            

2.  CHAINRING BOLT DISTANCE  
        Measure from one chainring bolt directly to the next. Is it near 2.5" or near 3"

3.  NUMBER OF CHAINRING BOLTS  
        Count them. Do you have 4 or 5?

4.  FIND THE CORRESPONDING GATES SYSTEM BY APPLYING THE INFORMATION ATTAINED TO THE CHART BELOW.

            Find FRAME LENGTH in the 2nd column, match to your chainring bolt spacing and the number of bolts in the 1st column.

Order the appropriate system using the assigned Kit Numbers, i.e., 706-5-SST+.
