Interesting, although in the Netherlands you can get bikes for a similar price. The customization makes me think of Van Moof

While there are many benefits for a belt-driven bicycle, there are plenty drawbacks too:
@gianpaj very good to know!
Damn, in Canada the Ikea Family Price makes a $400 difference!
To bad the cart in the front style all over Europe seems to be a "no-no" in the US.
But I see a chain 🤔
@nivo0o0 It's a rubber belt
@eindbaas @nivo0o0 Rubber seems like something that would not hold up very well in this context... But hey, there's a 10 year warranty on the belt drive, and a 25 year warranty on the bike ("limited" though...) Plus rust-proof, which is sweet.
@shimmb @nivo0o0 Don't think of rubber as in rubber band but rubber as in tire. Brands like Trek use the same belts.
