      Developed by car part supplier Mando and sold by affiliate Halla Meister, the chainless bicycle comes with an electric motor so as to get up hills with little effort. It can drive 30 to 45 km on a single charge.

      Dubbed "Footloose," it sells for a hefty 3,990 euros in Europe and around W4.5 million here (US$1=W1,035).
