Chainless bikes...

Shaft-drive bicycles have apparently been around since the early 1900s, but... who knew? Dynamic Bicycles offers a line of chainless mountain bikes that, while a pound or two heavier than chain bikes, don't come with the risk of greasy fingers, derailed chains or chomped pant legs. Plus, without a traditional derailleur, their 7- and 8-speed bikes offer a "gear range comparable to 20 gears on a 24-gear chain bike, including multiple climbing gears for exhilarating off-road performance." And the price, the $550-850 range, isn't so bad either. (I think I paid that much for a tank of gast this morning.)
