circulation

The idea of Circulation is to store and control the mechanical energy, which comes form both potential and kinetic energy, with clockwork device during the energy transformation process. Then, the stored energy will feed back to the rider.

When Circulation accelerating too fast, the chain driven by the rear wheel will fasten up the clockwork device. In this way, not only the speed can be control, but also the extra energy can be stored, by fastening up the clockwork device. When rider needs extra power, Circulation is able to release the stored energy to aid riding.
