Tahoe Belted

  September 5, 2018

Gates Carbon Drive traveled to North Lake Tahoe for the Interbike-Outdoor Demo festival, where we offered consumers, dealers, journalists and industry members test rides on some of the coolest new belt drive bikes.

Gates presented a fleet of bikes to ride on the trails and paved routes at Northstar Resort, where Outdoor Demo took place from September 15-17. The Gates tent included electric bikes from Riese & Muller, Pedego, Bulls and Pure; mountain bikes from Nicolai, Viral and REEB; pavement bikes from Budnitz, Cannondale, Schindelhauer, Priority and Coast Cycles; touring bikes from Co-Motion; fixed gear and singlespeed cyclocross bikes from Ti Cycles and even children’s bikes. Here’s a peak at some of our Tahoe bikes:
