    Of the two it probably wouldn't matter as long as you went with a GOOD brand chain. Some people like the gear drive due to the fear of breaking a chain. Some just think the niosy gear drive sounds cool. I myself now use a belt drive.
    Wasn't me.

    Chain or belt drive......any gear drives I've seen had waaaaay to much slack and the noise doesn't impress me at all.

    A belt or chain will absorb more harmonics than a gear drive system.

    Agree with TS1955. Thats why you should never use a gear with a cast crank.
