Default Re: shaft drive

How about using a weed whacker mounted in frame, with the shaft cut to size and a roller that would engage with the sidewall of the tire?
Also, has anyone ever used a cone shaped sliding roller so that you could have multiple gear ratios?
you could combine these ideas with the ww shaft mounted in an outer sheath that allowed it to slide forward and back allowing a cone shaped roller to contact the sidewall at different widths of the cone.
