both-wheel drive

Dave C sent me this from this week's Gizmag. A careful look at the bike above shows an additional chain just where it's going to reduce your left knee to hamburger. That connects to another 'nother chain, that connects to another 'nother chain, that has some kind of universal joint, that drives the front wheel.

I don't do enough mountain biking to know if this is necessary, or even desirable. But all that extra chain whippin' around the inside of my thigh makes me nervous. (And there's not a good close-up of the universal joint, so I can get a bleppo of how it works.

I don't know whether to file this under "dumb" or not.
