Interesting could really have appeal to those who hate the mess that chains caused. In the spirit of the "forum", can I ask three questions?

1.) How much energy gets lost as you transfer the direction of rotation by 90-degrees - twice?

2.) Seems like it could be an expensive & time consuming proposition for free-style riders, who tend to replace worn out equipment often. Comment?

3.) I'm surprised at the target market -- mountain & freestyle. These riders get dirty & sweaty anyways, so the mess of the chain is not a concern. Why didn't you choose to market it at the more grease-phobic "recreational" rider?

Chainless Bikes

I recommend dekrabike. It's only around $300. There's a lifetime warranty on the frame, forks, and the D-Drive chainless internal operating system.
