  • reverse Balt tacking

    Just wondering if anyone's noticed this being messing around with wheel alignment and belt tension everything is good belt tracks someone in Middle but not too worried about it looks good but I noticed when I push my bike backwards the belt will float over to one side of the pulley which is the outside anyone else notice that should I be concerned as soon as wheel goes forward it goes back to Center or just passed..

    Unless you can ride that thing backwards......


    Me: Old, but not obsolete.
    The bike: Timeless.

    Pushing forward, pushing backwards and powering forward will all make the belt do different things due to slight movement of the cush hub that the rear pulley is attached to. This is not something you should worry about. Align the wheels with each other instead.

      Rolling the wheel backward puts tension on the top of the belt and on the teeth that are used to drive the bike. When my wheels are aligned the belt is centered, or close to it, when the wheel is rolled backwards and also when it is being ridden.
