Ok, I got another donation bike, and this has GOT to be the
dumbest gimmick I have yet seen on a bike...an automatic transmision.
the thing is bizarre !!
It's a CMA "Autobike" 6 sp. "classic"
I got the bike yesterday and started working on it, the crank arm fell off,
so I found a nut for it and put air in the tires and took it for a spin...
guess what ?? It doesn't work
It didn't shift..It sorta acted like it wanted too when I coasted but it
seems quite happy to stay in 1st gear.
It appears it has some sort of weird sensor on 3 of the spokes, perhaps its
suppossed to work off spoke tension but I don't know.
Anyone ever delt with one of theis contraptions ??
