I just purchased a belt drive bike (Gates CD).
Maintenance free, according to the BS and what I have read online. The only attention is to replace it every 5000 km.
Since I usually ride around 8000 km/year, I was thinking to replace it once a year.
However I don't know what can happen by using a belt past its replacement swap mileage.
Can it snap like a belt in a internal combustion engine? Or, more in general, what are the risks?
