New new style of bike called the ‘StringBike’ has been designed by a team of designers from the Schwinn Csepel Zrt. Who have removed the messy chain and replaced it with taught wires and kidney shaped eccentric discs. Your can see the new mechanism working in te video after the jump.
The kidney discs serve the same function as a traditional circle-shaped gear, although in the Stringbike’s case different sized and shaped discs can be installed that change performance (e.g. racing or touring).
