Isn't that basically what they use for recumbents? (nm)ColnagoFE

I did find it on a bent/folding site, but it wasn't actually offered as a fit option - they seem to go mainly with triples/Rholoff (if you have lots of cash).

Can't say I have ever seen one in action - conceptually sound idea in may ways though - nice and compact, hidden away so no need to clean etc. For most commuters, I would guess a cheap derail/3 speed hub with one of these would be a fairly good idea.

Just when you think you have seen all the ideas before....
