A very nice (but very expensive) automatic commuter bicycle option

Not too long ago we showed you a new automatic transmission that has been developed with bicycles in mind, but may very well be suitable for larger-scale machines such as motorcycles or even automobiles in the future. The transmission is now available on the Ellsworth Ride city bike. We have also shown you how you could potentially save time by commuting on a bicycle, depending on the traffic patterns in the area in which you live. Granted, this is a very expensive bicycle ($3,000-$4,000), but think of the bright side: not only will you have no emissions when you ride (in style), but you will also be helping your own body.
