PLUS THe fact the Yamaha guys rejected various mechanical systems, similar to this one, before coming up with their light, relatively simple hydraulic deal.

The hydraulic system does appear simpler and easier to make variable as well.



Maybe we're seeing a real revolution in power delivery here.

BTW the entire P-D rally went by and this is the first mention of it on this site!

Things need to improve around here.

John,



Just checking some of the comments. Our system weighs 7 lbs. It was designed around the previous attempts by Honda and Yamaha for a shaft drive system. Their barrier was getting it through the head tube without torque steer. We resolved this with counter-rotating shafts. The bicycle is exposed, but the motorcycle has completely enclosed, fully lubricated, spiral gearing. We will have some more pictures up on the site showing this. Take note of the fork lowers.



Pass it on. We appreciate all the comments... It helps us build a better product.

dividing power over more wheels means that you're less likely to over-power a wheel. more of a safety margin for cornering traction while applying power, and more traction in slippery situations.. where one wheel might not be able to push you through.

7th place overall, but that's plus 3 or 4 stage wins. After Fretinge won the first two stages (on his rookie Dakar!) I was seriously wondering if he was going to just sweep the whole thing. Not bad for a rookie on a bike with (at least) 200 fewer ccs than everybody else.
