bearings. etc. Usually in bicycle the chain and sprocket method are used but we use the shaft and bevel gears for transmitting the power from pedal to the rear wheel. This avoid the usage of chain and sprocket method and avoid the slip. The back wheel of the bicycle is connected with the bevel gear(driven). circular shaft. Thus bicycle will move forward. There are different components are used to fabricate the chainless bicycle which includes bevel gears. i TABLE OF CONTENT ..The aim of our project is to design and fabrication of chainless bicycle. The other side of the long rod is connected with a set of bevel gears. extension rod. Thus the back wheel is rotated in perpendicular to the shaft. In chainless bicycle the bevel gears are used instead of chain. The shaft of the engine is connected with a long rod. bushes for bearings. The bevel gears are used to rotate the shaft in 90∘angle.
