Bike The Mando Footloose is the worlds first chainless
electric bike. Batteries are stored in the frame and
the pedals are linked to an alternator to generate
electricity while you pedal. When you have arrived
at your destination the bike neatly folds down to
a manageable size.
However it will set you back around £2,000
($3,200) if you buy it.
And as Spencer Kelly discovered when he took
one for a test-ride in London, not having a chain
does have its drawbacks.
