Alternatively, you could look into the way rear suspension movement interracts with torque through the drive chain. Maybe design an alternative to a rear swinging arm using a multibar linkage so that the axle travels in a bath which remains a constant distance from the output sproket. i haven't given it any serious thought but it's the first Idea that has come to mind

I was looking at a project for late high school students here, running a bike on those disposable 220g gas canisters.







could be fun, on a long stroke 500 eg. the Enfield.

No use teaching folk who live in the dessert to swim :wink: I've given folk the general idea ..... but you/they are terminal watchers ..... not doers ...... hence why you have no idea ...... skidding with the back brake ....... ........ let me guess .... you were one of those kids on pushies who used to tell us that the "backing" part of "backing it in" pertained to using the back brake? cos thats how you skidded your bike? Yet in reality when we talked of backing it in we meant a tendency for the back to be trying to enter the corner before the front :rolleyes" terminal spectators! ....... no idea still worth a good laugh though
