  1. If you do a lot of commuting like I do (16,000 kms a year typically) the R&M with belt drive is the cat’s meow. I’ve just clocked my first 5,000 kms on my Charger 3 and the only maintenance has been an oil change in the E14 hub.
    On derailleur based bike it would have been 2-3 chains, and likely a cassette and jockey wheels. The low maintenance with a belt drive is a real treat after 50+ years of wear and tear.
