TMM sensor in combination with belt drive
The application of a belt drive is becoming increasingly common on bicycles. The advantages are obvious: No lubrication and chain case needed, almost no wear, no elongation and a long life time. IDbike has build a prototype to test our sensor in combination with a belt drive of Continental. Contrary to other belt drives, the Continental belt requires a very low pretension . High pretension deteriorates the correct working of the sensor. However, in combination with the Continental belt the system works as good as with a chain.
