It’s no secret that Gates Carbon Drive is pushing into the electric bike market. The Gates belt drive simply makes sense on eBikes due to its clean and quiet attributes, and its all-weather durability. As part of this effort Gates has partnered with two of the leading brands in the eBike market: Bosch and Fallbrook Technologies. Bosch makes the most popular motor system for eBikes, pictured above, and Fallbrook makes the innovative NuVinci N360 continuously variable planetary hub and shifting system.

Gates Carbon Drive has partnered with Bosch and Fallbrook on a novel initiative for the upcoming North American Handmade Bicycle Show. Gates will present a Custom eBike Showcase featuring five custom electric bikes created by some of the nation’s finest handmade bike builders, featuring the Bosch, NuVinci and Gates systems. Pictured below is an e-cargo bike created by English Cycles for the showcase, to be displayed at the show next month in Charlotte, North Carolina.
