BikePortlant posted their exclusive on the Shimano Coasting Components last fall, but now the tech-geek blogs have picked up on Shimano's new 3-speed automatic transmission for bikes.

Shimano has opened up their coasting.com website for public perusal, featuring Coasting-equipped bikes from Trek, Giant, and Raleigh. Shimano has recognized this trend toward easy-to-ride bikes for anybody.

The much-maligned Landrider is known for their "AutoShift" technology to address this need for a bike that you don't have to think about shifting. More recently, Fallbrook Technologies introduced a Continuously Variable Transmission for use on bicycles. They demonstrated their NuVinci Continuous Variable Planetary system on Ellsworth concept bike last fall at Interbike.
