    I'm curious now. Why a belt?

    Hi Tom. Welcome.

    Chalo - can't speak for Tom, but some reasons for considering a belt drive might be lower noise, and smooth power transfer. Belt efficiency is a little less than a well maintained/aligned chain, but not a lot less. And in dry climates, you don't have to worry so much about water induced slippage.
