The Franklin bike looks very high-quality and it has a innovative driving gear named cyfly.

The Möve CyFly has been subject to discussions in german forums and on Facebook ever since it was announced.
The company started by promising "50% more power" and has since backtracked to "50% more torque" - today they promise "more efficiency" without giving a value.

Up to now, Möve refuses to provide any comprehensible or replicable test data to prove their marketing claims.

A well respected member of the german "Tour Forum" got hold of a test bike and did comparison runs with both a Franklin/CyFly and a regular bike, using a HR measurement device, and without finding any hint of improvement that could be assigned to the use of the CyFly crank system.

bottom line: Yet another hapless attempt on improving "cycling efficiency" which will vanish as fast as it arrived.
