Forget the WD-40.  Hungarian bike designers give a whole new meaning to clean design by unveiling the world’s first chainless bike, reports WIRED.

Stringbike uses a wire and pulley system instead of a common chain and with its symmetric system, designers say that it makes bike riding a more comfortable and efficient experience than having gears and a chain on one side.   Not only can casual riders and serious racers use different shaped and sized parts to alter performance and function, but the rear wheel can be removed and easily stored in the trunk of your car.

And without the hassle of rusty chains and greasy jeans, now you’ll just have to come up with a new excuse to neglect your bike.
