A Ladies Lime. You see that seat? You can open it up and stash your stuff in it!

Here’s a close up on the rear hub. Basically it uses a Shimano Nexus 3 speed coaster hub.

Here’s the little gizmo that automatically shifts the Nexus on the fly.

The front hub is what indicates to the gizmo when to shift. Basically it works as a sensor. When you are traveling at a faster speed, the gizmo will shift the Nexus to the next gear. When you start to slow down, it will down shift automatically.
