WMU Wins National Chainless Challenge

On July 30-31, a WMU team made up of CEAS professors and students won the 3rd National Chainless Challenge, sponsored by Parker Hannifin Corporation.  This competition pits engineering schools against each other in the challenge of designing a bicycle that does not use a chain to transfer a rider’s energy to the wheels.  You can read about the contest itself in a Design News article by Paul Sharke from last year.  In the first year, WMU came in fifth.  In 2006 (second year), WMU came in second.  This year, they are first!
