    So it would require a special tire?

    No - just a special hub. No cassettes or sprockets as the "gear ratio" is completely variable.

    Follow the link and take a look at the video. Link is embedded in the line at the bottom that says "hungarian ambiance"

    Tried the AutoBike and the variable nature of the gears caused slippage on hill and other bad things. Make it a bad experience at the very least and at worse, unacceptable to most. Wonder if this one has some down sides too?
