Anyone Have Longer GEBE Belts?

    I have a GEBE belt-drive kit and am mulling over my options for building a custom frame. The length of belt that is standard doesn't give me a whole lot of choices for mounting, as the engine's gotta be placed right near the rear wheel.

    Does anyone make a kevlar belt that's long enough to put the engine in the front triangle?

    This is second hand info, from a fella doin' his own thing with a few gebe parts he got from me...

    He said there are plenty of sizes, longer and shorter, made by Gates. He bought about 5 narrow/notched belts of various incremental lengths at a Flea Market, so he could do experimentation.

    Perhaps Gates has a website?

    Gates does have an online catalog, but when I was looking for a spare belt previously (before I bought another one from GEBE) the kevlar one that GEBE uses was not listed.
