  • Patent number: 7621834
    Abstract: A transmission mechanism obtains reduced cost by facilitating a process for guide grooves formed on an inner cylinder of a ball spline mechanism and regulates a movement of a drive sprocket in an axial direction by means of a simple structure. A one-way clutch transmits torque only when a crankshaft rotates positively to a drive sprocket through a ball spline mechanism. A clutch outer body and an inner slide member of the ball spline mechanism are composed of members separate from and coupled to each other by coupling pins to be integrally rotatable in an overlapping portions in an axial direction. Guide grooves for housing balls of the ball spline mechanism are formed on the inner slide member while opening to the axial direction at both ends thereof in the axial direction.

  • Patent number: 7520831
    Abstract: A gear-shifting apparatus is provided which does not require a position of a chain to be set with high precision, and which reduces a risk of the chain coming off an adjacent sprocket due to a quick gear shifting operation. The gear shifting system includes a derailer for changing the chain from one sprocket to another among a plurality of axially-arranged gear shifting sprockets, and a case for containing the gear shifting sprockets and the chain. The case is provided with a protruding part for preventing the chain from moving axially outwardly at an area too close to the case. The protruding part effectively prevents the chain from coming off from the adjacent sprocket by means of contact of the protruding part with the chain.

  • Patent number: 7503862
    Abstract: A transmission includes a ball spline mechanism having an outer member which can rotate integrally with an inner member by means of balls housed in guide grooves and which can move in the axial direction; and a derailer which shifts a chain wrapped around a first sprocket moving integrally with the outer member from one transmission sprocket to another among a plurality of operating sprockets. The inner member and the outer member include guide surfaces through which the outer member is guided to move in the axial direction through the balls. The outer member is provided with a dust cover for covering the guide surfaces, regardless of the axial position of the first sprocket.
