Hmmm… I didn’t know that the bike could be upgraded further… but apparently there are people working on ways to make them more efficient.
Three remarkable innovations are transforming the mechanics of the common bicycle. In fact, these new technologies may be the most significant developments in bike engineering since the original “safety” bicycle was invented at the end of the 19th century. Is your current two-wheeler even worth keeping? The following report should make you wonder.

On the changes that they talk about in the article, the only one that I’m not sure about is the electronic shifter, if the battery dies, then you cannot shift, unless it draws power from the movement of the bike…
but I would really love to see the other two show up.
I do really like my bike, I’ll probably go for a ride some time today, it’s finally nice out!
Have a great day!
