There’s no doubt that biking is an ideal form of green transportation – but what about days when it’s rainy, cold or when you feel like dressing up? Check out this video (sent to us by Kirsten Dirksen of Fair Companies) about a New Jersey man and his human-powered commute vehicle a.k.a. the Velomobile. It’s part bike and part car, but faster than a bike and cooler than a car – and it’s 100% human-powered!

    New transmission CVT design by BitRaptor. Is a continuously variable transmission CVT gear only (the only one functional in the world), very compact and lightweight, and which could replace the current systems both for efficiency, simplicity and not least the costs.

    Because this CVT work only with pinions is better the all other systems by efficiency and high torque transmission.

    In the web page you will find more explanations, drawings and a short video of a basic prototype.

    The first prototype will be ready for tests during this year.

    Other possible applications CVT design by BitRaptor are: bicycles, motorcycles, cars, automobils, boats, gearboxes, electric motors, steam and wind turbine, as well as a large number of industrial or agriculture applications whenever is necessary some adjustment of the gear ratio.
