just put a new drive belt on and while setting it up I spun the wheel and it appears to be emitting a cracking sound from the front pullet area...(sounds like a bearing problem? bike only has 800 miles??..when I vloosen the tension to very loose it is gone... I just put new wheels rear pulley.....I'm wondering if thee is more to the whole thing or if anyone has experienced this one???

What you're probably hearing are the "teeth" of the belt meshing with the pulley. I noticed this sound also. I sprayed some silicone lubricant on the pulley and the noise went away (well, almost went away, it's still there when the belt heats up :( )
