Feasibility Testing of a Belt Driven CVT Bicycle

We created two test stands to answer various questions we had about the design. We have determined that the current design must be modified before a CVT will work on a bicycle. The test stands have been designed to allow further testing of these modifications.

CVT Info

Our design uses a variable diameter pulley continously variable transmission. This type of transmission can be found on snowmobiles and scooters, and coming soon, bicycles. To learn more about this system, visit:
