The German MIFA announced a chainless electric bicycle.
The bike has been built with a cooperation of the bike manufacturer, an institute and a high school If you don’t know MIFA; this company is one of the biggest bicycle manufacturer of Germany; they produce yearly 650.000 bikes. They jumped into the electric bike industry with the purchase of Grace (the contract manufacturer of the Smart).
As you can see on the picture, the bicycle has neither chain nor gears. You can see a generator instead of the crankset, which creates electricity during pedaling. The bike has a rear hub motor for drive. You can see more information about this special bike here.
You can’t see a display on the handlebar, but you can use your mobile phone to control the bike.
This is not the first bike we showed you with this drive train. The foldable Mando Footlose and the beast PG Bikes Blacktrail 2 has the same kind of driving system, so we can say, this is a new trend of the electric bike manufacturers.
