Belt Drive

Joe Bike is North America's premier belt drive bike shop. Whether you're looking for a singlespeed belt drive cyclocross racer or a custom-built world tourer with Rohloff and a belt, you've arrived at the right place.

We live breathe and sleep belt drive bicycles because they are so quiet, strong, low maintenance, have no rusty, oily or greasy chains and are super reliable. These are some of the reasons why we think that Belt drive commuter bikes are THE Ultimate and best commuter bikes for anyone who loves form, function, and a fantastic ride.

The belts, made by Gates Carbon Drive will generally give you 3000 - 5000 miles vs a standard bike chain and casssette that will usually need to be replaced every 500 - 1000 miles. 

This love of efficiency is also why we love Dynamo Lights and Dynamo Hubs.

Marin Fairfax SC6 DLX frameset
$99.00 $259.00 62% Off
These are new framesets (not complete bikes) that had been assembled into complete bikes at the factory. Alloy frame, carbon fork. Compatible with a chain or belt, and with conventional drivetrains, internally geared hubs, or single speed. (Note that if you use a belt, your gearing options are limited to either single speed or an internally geared hub.) The bottom bracket is eccentric, but belt tension is independent of that, so you don't need to mess with the bb when you change a tube or tire or when you reinstall the rear wheel for whatever reason. Want to build your frame up with a conventional drivetrain? Order the rear derailleur hanger along with the frame (see Related Items). *Note that there is no place to mount a front derailleur.* Headset and seatpost collar included. Note: some of these framesets are from the "2016" model year and others are "2016". The only difference is a subtle change in graphics, with the 2017/2018 having a bit more white striping. The photo here of the complete bike is of a 2016. Please let us know your preference in the notes field at checkout. We'll do our best to honor your request.
