LandRider, a brand owned by Venture Cycle of Baltimore, Maryland, appear to have picked up where AutoBike left off, marketing the stroke of genius that is the automatic derailleur.

They seem to continue with this charmingly hopeless project to this day, and have a website with some entertainingly cheesy video.

Thankfully, they also continue the long derailleur tradition of using brand names with an inexplicable capital letter in the middle of the word.
