Have belt will travel

Not meant to continue on the merits or lack thereof of belt drives, but

The website is German. I translated the home page.

And she's just not a pretty blonde. She received a doctorate in
biotechnologies from Univ of Vienna in 1997.

She's a true renaissance girl. Can ride endurance, off-road, track. . .
