Help! Help!

I’m trying to find the website for a new bicycle built around an infinitely variable drive system. I vaguely recall seeing something about it, something that I noticed only in passing. The reason I ask for help is because I simply cannot find it, and my increasingly porous memory doesn’t help at all.

We were talking about electric cars at work today, and someone mentioned this drive system as a better alternative to an automotive automatic transmission.

    I was wondering if Ellsworth was still selling the Nuvinci equipped bike. I think Batavus might be the biggest user of that technology right now. I've also seen a couple of Nuvinci equipped cruisers (maybe Ellsworth built and rebadged?)
