    nuVinci N360's unique chain

    Hi,

    So I found recently that the nuVinci N360 is within reach of my budget.

    I'm pretty sure that one of their innovations was this weird chain which basically had all of its teeth pointing inwards so as to not snag pants. This is possible because there's no derailleur system requiring the chain to bend in the other way.

    I can't find this chain anywhere online.

    Where to find?

    Unless your frame has a way to open up to accommodate an endless belt, you better stick with conventional sprockets and chain.
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    There's this thing called a chainguard. I'd go with one of those.

    Majority of the frames can be modified to accept Kevlar belt - ask frame builders for a quote.

    the Belt modification involves cutting the rear triangle some where and making it open.

    common 1/8" chain should be fine. the belt drive parts will have another $500 cost..

    there is that .. too ..

    Ouch. Cutting open a triangle? That's...a bit too much.

    Is it better to get the Rim brake nuvinci or the disc brake nuvinci? Or the roller brake nuvinci?

    what fittings are on your bike frame? I am not going to guess.

    I'd go with the disk brake version for future proofing, but build it up as a rim brake wheel
