The W. David Westergard patent solves the following problem:

This invention relates to transmissions used often in multi-cycle wheels such as bicycles, and especially the mechanism that allows for the orderly transfer of such transmissions between gears of different ratio.

Our analysis of this patent is as follows:

W. David Westergard’s patent US 6173982 B1 deals with Self aligning crank assembly and method.
A better transmission cycle consisting of 1) a freewheel cluster rotatably coupled to the rear wheel of a bicycle and in axial alignment with the rear wheel axle; 2) a crank assembly with one or more lapta touched chain ring rotatably coupled to a front section of the bicycle frame and axial alignment with the pedal axle; and 3) a drive chain entrained around the freewheel and chain ring. In a first, the crank assembly comprises a chain ring is lapta moved with respect to the frame cycle. Lateral movement of chain rings come in direct response to changes in the position of chain drive freewheel cluster. The lateral movement of the chain ring allows the drive chain to maintain himself in a single plane relative to the chosen freewheel sprocket, thereby eliminating lateral prejudice. So, with no lateral prejudice, the entire group of freewheel sprockets are available in single chain ring, which eliminates the need for a chainwheel derailleur and complex shift patterns, and simplifies the operation of the transmission. A two chain rings to touch handles assembly and transmission further described. Additionally, a simplified method to operate the improved transmission of the present invention is disclosed.
