Trek Soho 2009
Got the 2010 version, which is almost unchanged. I use it for commuting about 30 km a day and that works fine without maintenance. However, after about 3000 km the belt started to squeak and to "hop over" under hard pressure. Got the belt and rear gearweel replaced at my dealer and it works fine again. I expected the belt to last longer than that and it may be that the first belt had to much tension (as installed by the dealer). The new belt has a much lower tension and until now it works fine.... SO, the conclusion must be: buy the bike at a dealer who knows how to handle and install belt drives correctly. P.S. my roller brakes work fine, imo no need to change that.
