    How about a section for friction drive ? Friction drive can be mounted on the back or in the frame.

    Thanks, Steve

    There does seem to be a lot of friction-drive bikes here. Aren't most posting in the rack-mount section already? How does everyone else feel about the addition of this new forum?

    Tom Bartlett's "Zip Cycle" is frame mounted, with a belt drive, to a friction wheel on the rear tire!~!

    Ok, I'll create the friction drive forum. However, if anyone has any reason that this forum should not be created, please speak now or forever hold your peace...

    One thing I've noticed in general on forums as they evolve is the call at times for more and more specialized pages.
    Unfortunately, it doesn't always seem a sound decision but rather a dilutive one, only making the mixture weaker and some dead zones.

    Perhaps as a case in point it might do well to ponder the Recumbent page with the last post (as of this writing) 9/30 or the Powered Trikes page with the last post on 9/10.

    Peeling off FD's from Rack-Mounted leaves......?

    Rack mounted belt and chain drives. I don't see them going away anytime soon.

    Some friction drives are mounted on the front forks.
