We should stop copying from other designs and stop asking each other. There is so much more to learn and discover. I would like to see more new original designs - ideas, something that no one have, discover new challenges and new info!

Wait till you see the rear truck. I am excited to get it built to show you guys.
#2 The reason I want to make stationary hubs that allow the wheels to be pulled off easily without mounting the pulleys to the wheels is for a couple reasons. First, it does not take any more work to do it this way. If I am making this from scratch anyway, I may as well take that last step and make it different and easier to work on. Second, because the pulley can be made to run much straighter this way. Basically, if you cantelever a pulley far off center from the support bearings (the wheel bearings in a wheel mounted pulley scenerio), you increase the potential for belt issues. My setup will have the drive pulley supported on its own bearing directly in line with the belt. So, the wheel bearings will not affect the belt what-so-ever. This may not seem like a big deal, but as I mentioned before, this is no big deal to change the design from a machining standpoint. It is easy to do and makes the system a bit more finished having separate hubs.
#2 The pulley bearings I am using are needle bearings. The needles roll on the surface of the tube they are running around. So, I wanted a steel surface for the bearings to roll on. I would assume aluminum would not be as good an option.
