I just bought a full suspension bike - I had been using a Schwinn High Sierra no-suspension bike I got in the 1980s. I'm 60ish now and my back needs the full suspension. I'm gone with the Schwinn.

Performance Bike's retail stores are apparently going out of business and they're liquidating stuff at great prices. I bought a Hawk Hill 2 from the local store for $1350 and I'm very happy with it....

Sorry - I missed this. I had an issue with 3rd gear skipping when I first got the bike. The belt was too tight - after this was sorted out then it shifted fine and still does. The whole bike...

Agreed, the belt drive is a little spendy! I think it provides a better return than titanium parts, at least for what I sought. I wanted a dependable travel bike that would not require much...

I bought a BF pakiT last summer with an RF-4 & belt drive - so far, so good! I like it. The shifts are consistent and there's no low-hanging derailleur or chain to drag in the mud and dust.

I bought a BF Pakit with carbon drive & 4 speed hub. I love it so far, but the belt started creaking. What usually causes that - too loose? Misalignment?

To me, the biggest shortcoming of a belt drive is the chronic lack of grease tattoo on your right calf. People won't believe that you rode to work.
