Re: Audi All Wheel Drive Mountain Bike

     Really bad idea.  I file(circular) this with automatic shifting 
     mountain bikes.
     A mountain bike does not need more than one drive wheel.  The reason 
     is that the rider can position his/her weight in such a way to

>>Power was transferred to the front wheel through a flexible drive shaft. I 
have looked at the various bike catalogs to no avail: this does not seem to 
be available in the US. 
Does anybody know anything about this bike? Does it work?<<
I saw one of those two wheel drive cable operated things last year on trail 
near Denver.  It wasn't an Audi.  It looked like it had a big speedometer 
cable type thing connecting the front and rear hubs.  Didn't seem to help the

BTW, if anyone finds a lung at Waterton Canyon, its mine.  I think I lost it 
on the second switch-back after the stream.
Sorry about the lack of Audi content, but I do transport the bike on my q.
