Bicycle with Unlimited Gear Ratios

 Assets Resources 2007 12 Theridebike
Employing some sort of ball bearings and metal disc system magic inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, this bicycle effectively has an unlimited selection of gear ratios. Anyone willing to drop $3k – $4k on one of these and let us know how it rides?

  1. The “inventor” of this system is actually the son of a friend of my dad’s. Which links him to his boss who happens to know Kevin Bacon. 🙂 When my dad was up for Thanksgiving we were reading up on the technology and uses after he mentioned it in casual conversation. I think it’s too heavy to be practical for most cycling applications. The hub weighs something like 6 pounds whereas a typical bicycle hub/cassette/derailer weighs in around 2 pounds or less. It is still a great idea.
