Electrical bicycle auto shifter.

We suppose Shimano has done pretty much everything in bicycle gears except an automatic, so it was probably due. The new (?) technology is launched under the Coasting brand (almost unreadable site), and as far as we can gather it may be available in four bikes from three manufacturers; Trek, Giant and Raleigh. If any of them will hit Europe and Sweden is shrouded in uncertainty, by we think at least Trek has an importer, so maybe… The bikes shown are no sports rigs, they are more like something you’d pedal to the store with. The power shifter is located inside the oversized chain cover, and, if we are not mistaken, it’s powered by a dynamo in the front wheel. The actual gears are located in the rear hub. You’ll find a longer text on the Bike Gallery web site.brbr
