OEM Hobbit belt: worth 5x more than a bx40??

Terbo Speghetti /

So is it worth the extra scratch to get a real oem belt?

Seems to me it would be hard to beat 4-5 of the BX bois for the same price, but I'm not a smart Hobbit person so I'm here asking all youse.

For reference, mine is a pretty aggressive setup. Polini, vforce reeds, tjt, race gears, etc.(edited)

I'm dedicated to hobbits.

Bx40 is the worst belt ever for hobbits

Too tall too wide.

Any belt is better.

Treats has a bando stock reproduction that kicks ass

So is that different than the OEM one that treats sells?

Because sixty is too many fucking dollars for a belt.

And my stock belt slips already. I'm sure it's just because it's old and worn, but that still makes me wanna look at other options

Yeah look at their website it's there on their website

The internet

Might not be worth 5x the price of a bx40, but that is what everyone is charging for the OEM belt (and comparable pricing on the 'fancy ass high performance' replacements).

Can't say nothing about those treats oem ones, but I can say that the mitsobushi belts are vastly Superior to the BX. I have a stash I guard with reverence....

If the treats is anything like the Mitsubishi, it's worth it.(edited)

As far as I know, the $60 treats ones ARE Mitsuboshi OEM belts. But I haven't bought one to confirm

The Endurance belt from Treats is almost exactly the same as a stock belt. it's all i run on my Hobbit.

wow that is a super good looking toptank hobbit and i think the only bike i've ever seen with the sachs tank that doesn't look stupid as a top tank.

Yeah that subframe-mounted rear fender is an excellent touch as well
