    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Shaft driven Single Speed !!

    Okay, so maybe its a little on the small size. But it could be made bigger and makes as much sense as a belt driven bike (even has a coaster brake ) .

    Saw a full size bike similar to that at IB '03. Lots of drag in the system, though. Too bad... it seems like a cool idea. Could easily be either fixed or free.

    much more friction than a chain drive.
    I once rode an 1896 Crescent safety bike with shaft drive. Fixed gear. It was cool, huhhuh huh huhhuh
    Don't pay the $85 fee to ride land you own! Resist!

    Sadly it does not feel very solid when putting torque in the pedals.

    I once saw a shaft drive bike that looked to be at least 50 years old in a shop in Copenhagen, Denmark.
