I searched dutifully, but couldn't find a thread on this. (I believe Andre might have a bike with Carbon Drive; not sure.) Has this been discussed here?
I would be very interested to hear how the Carbon Drive system's friction losses compare to those of a chain, and how it holds up in heavy use by a serious rider.
Here are test results about efficiency.
They measured a loss of an extra watt, so not much extra drag.
If there were big longevity problems, I imagine Andrew would know about them.
