I know there's nothing stopping me contacting manufacturers and telling them about bicycles.stackexchange, but I was wondering how it is seen by the community here.
Specifically, I was thinking about contacting Gates who make belts and drive train components for belt-driven bicycles, in order to answer some questions I had that would best be answered by them.
Then I thought, I can ask them, but it would be better if they monitored the RSS for belt-driven chains, for instance. They can then contribute to answers or dispel any factually incorrect answers.
What do you think?
