Can someone explain to me why a Gates/Rohloff combination is so stonewalled? It's got warnings all over the kit that you cannot do an aftermarket conversion, that you need Rohloff to switch you from chain to belt (why?), that your frame apparently has to pass some stiffness test, et cetera. It never ends.
Reason I'm asking is that the parts for the front/rear CDX cogs for Gates are readily available on the market, and it seems like if your frame supports it, there should be a way to just attach them and ride. But evidently neither Rohloff nor Gates want you to do anything like that, preferring to keep this as some OEM option.
Don't get me wrong, I'm OK with chains, but why even bother selling the kit if people cannot use it?
