Default Re: Chinese do it again!

Never cared for the friction-drives at all myself. Simple, but it doesn't allow any sort of ratio-changing (gearbox) setup, and friction is a very inefficient means of transmitting torque. I wonder if it's possible to rear-mount an engine like friction-drive, but have it linked to a chain instead of a roller. Anyone?
Motorcycles, Motor-bicycles and bicycles- two wheels and the open air is all I need.
