Default Re: A new shift concept for the engineers....

I'm looking back through some of the other comments...

I can't for the life of me understand what possible difference a freewheel action could have on the gear selector. The cluster has to be in forward motion in order for the chain to make the transition up or down from one sprocket to another.

You don't pedal backwards to change gears on the right side?

Obviously a freewheel is a nice design feature when the chain is attached to pedals...but when attached to an engine; I just don't get the need for a freewheel.
