The new CHAINLESS and partly folding Beixo slim is a smart and slim urban-bike. Great for urban riding and commuting, but also for a weekend trip in the country side. It's foldable handle bars and pedals make the bike perfectly slim to store it easily in your hallway. So if space is an issue...here is your answer!
A Beixo has no old fashioned, greasy chain but an innovative, reliable and clean shaft drive system. No more dirty hands or clothes. A Beixo is strong, compact and above all: beautiful.
How it works
Shaft-driven bikes have a large bevel gear where a conventional bike would have its chainring. This meshes with another bevel gear mounted on the driveshaft. The use of bevel gears allows drive from the pedals to be turned through 90 degrees. The driveshaft then has another bevel gear near the rear wheel hub which meshes with a bevel gear on the hub where the rear sprocket would be on a conventional bike. The 90-degree change of the drive plane that occurs at the bottom bracket and again at the rear hub requires the use of bevel gears.
