Has anyone ever had a drive belt break while running at speed? If so, what happened? Does it just roll off, or get tangled up causing havoc?

I've seen a couple go, they both rolled out the back. There's not a whole lot of places for it to go, especially up around the front sprocket and it's rigid enough side to side it's not likely to get snagged in the rear wheel anywhere. I suppose it could happen, but never heard of it.

Daughter's Sporty blew a belt at speed a month ago. It just spit it out the back.

no trouble, no damage. Also a lot easier to replace than on one of our bikes. :D
