Look Ma', No Chain!

Hmm, what's missing here on this bike? The Dekra D-Drive bike has its transmission inside the chainstay, doing away with that 140 year old chain. Shifting through the bevy of all three gears is accomplished though an internally geared hub (what did I tell ya?). This little bit of comfort-tech is quite similar to (if not the exact same) as Biomega's Shaft-Drive system on their Coppenhagen bike, or Incline Sport Comfort Cross 3 Bike, or Bike Valley Co.'s Tara. These bikes would be great for commuters - no more tucking the pant leg into your socks! That's hot. The bike is being imported to the US by Dynacraft.
