Well... both for chain or belt system are very interesting to me, because this is a " cardboard" made bike. I think the chain system one, may not expensive, maybe it might be very cheap, but for belt system... hummm I think it may expensive than the chain one, not just about system, also it need to change or redesign the frame. :wink:
