What’s the Difference Between Chain Drive and Belt Drive?
Belt drives are more common among mountain bikes, though you tend to see them even on road bikes. The fact that they are lighter than chain drives is the primary reason
With a chain drive bike, the chain moves the bike forward and backward. When a belt drive bike is in motion, a series of sprockets, called a timing belt, moves the crankset around the bottom bracket to achieve motion.
