This is my first bike with a chain. My first was shaft, my second was belt. Pros and cons, all of them.
Shaft is toughest, no work, its a shaft. But change that oil every time you get a new tire, right?
Belt is only very very rare adjustments. 30-60k mile life. But they cost a small fortune to replace!
Chain, well you gotta clean and lube. This is my first, so you guys say 15k-22k? I'm not used to cleaning and lubing, I don't like it. I don't know what a new chain cost. But my regular rides are 200-500 miles. I don't like cleaning/lubing every ride, or nearly.
