So you have a jack shaft on a bike and you shift gears. To me this is not a transmission. I have never heard someone look at a bicycle and talk about a transmission just gears. The bicycle had gears on it before you put the motor on it and the engine has no transmission. Mopeds in the state of Connecticut must have automatic transmissions but this is a power assisted bicycle and there seems to be a difference to me anyways. If your were not speeding and got a ticket. to me this would be a reasonable argument in court.
Please give your thoughts.
