ok I quote : "The latter dispenses with that greasy old chain, yet Biomega reckon it has “less transmission loss than the average chain.”
Anybody who comes up with such bull in order to sell their stuff, is ridicoulous at best.
Chain drive has 5 % loss, Shaft drive has 25-30 % loss... give or take a few percent.
Meaning if they lie about such a blatant easy thing, you can bet that they lie about other stuff as well.
plastic alloy ? c'mon .... glue with rubber balls in it to keep it flexible????
The folding bike they offer, is a copy of a US made product.... they had problems keeping it stiff without the folding mechanism and never sold any substantial number... combined with the biomega plastic alloy frame halves , glued together with rubber balls .. I have serious doubts
ok enuff rant..... disclaimer : people know that I am a Dahon dealer, I am biased...lol
