Gates Carbon Drive is the high tech belt drive offering for bicycles. This app is designed to help your bike find its true belt drive potential.
Interested in key parameters of your drive like speed ratio or center distance? Want to know what belt lengths or sprocket sizes will fit your ride? What about comparing one bike to another to tweak your ratio perfectly? With our calculator and catalog, you can stay on top of the perfect setup for your drive.
What about tension? Is my tension too high or too low? Don’t have a proper tool? Well now we’re putting one of the easiest and best tension tools right into your iPhone (or iPod touch with microphone – not included). Just pluck your belt like a guitar string, and use the microphone on your iPhone to read the frequency that it’s vibrating at. Compare your belts frequency to the included chart to see if you need to adjust the tension.

Ratings and Reviews
Dark blue text on a dark background is really hard to read.
Should have clear images or short video showing exactly where to hold and how to pluck belt.
Feels like it was designed by engineers and for people who already know what they are doing, not for the first time user.
Interesting but not repeatable.
This is a really interesting idea, and double concept to check the belt tension. Unfortunately, every time I pluck the belt it resonates at a different frequency. I suppose a rule of thumb for testing manually is probably good enough.
Great Tool for Frame Builders
Needs a few updates based on current product offering.
Tension feature works great!
