Manual/auto gear shifting
[FONT=Tahoma][COLOR=RoyalBlue]Hey whatever happened to the AutoBike? Was it one of those invention like the Hoolahoop? Did it just fell out of popularity? For all the reasons that we like driving a manual transmission in a car, do we all like to have to change all our gears in a bike?
I am sure Shimano could have developed something similar whereby the gears shift for you to a larger rear gear, say when you are going up a hill, and then you can shift when you are on flat to go faster...
