Ever seen an All Wheel Drive FATBIKE? I didn't, until today... Check this masterpiece, it's awesome! Bike manufactured by Christini Bicycles - head over to their website for more info. Images taken from their website.
As far as I see, the rear wheel is powered by a traditional chain drivetrain, then rotational power is transferred by a long and complex construction of gears and shafts to the front wheel to make sure both wheels turn in exact sync. Truly brilliant.
But what's the point?
- Lean forward without losing wheel traction.
- Better climbing power, keep momentum longer uphill.
- Improved stability and recoverability in corners.
I'd like to try one, honestly.
