I have invented a new bike drive-train... no Patent, and no manufacturers contacted yet. A the midpoint of the downstroke the new drive-train generates 25% more leverage, with an average of 12.5% gain for each downstroke.
Where do I go with this?
Is a Provisional Patent sufficient?
Which components manufacturers might work with me?
How do I make a press release?
How do I adequately protect my breakthrough?
If I manufacture this myself, how do I find sponsors? investors?
Open to all suggestions.
