As an avid cyclist, I know the greasy mess a broken or displaced chain can leave behind so it is with hopeful anticipation that I await the rise of the Schwinn Csepel Zrt. 'Stringbike.' A revolutionary cycle innovation, this prototype could see the end of bike chains forever.

Basically, the Schwinn Csepel Zrt. 'Stringbike' employs the use of wires instead. According to Dvice, "The pedal assembly consists of kidney-shaped eccentric discs, a swinging unit and the transmission. Those discs work like gears do on a traditional bike, and they can be swapped out for different-sized discs depending on what sort of riding you'll be doing."
