Thumbs up Re: DUDE! Where's my locking freewheel ??!!

Ok- i'm just bumping this up mostly because I'm hoping that someone will see this idea-

of a LOCKING FREEWHEEL and who can make it reality-

A flip flop hub would work- with a freewheel on each side, and the one on the motor side would then lock up with a lever, to restart the motor-

so that when the motor is off and the bike is being pedalled- only the regular bike chain would be turning- only the weight of the motor kit itself would be the difference between normal cycling then


The bike wouldn't need a pull start or a centrifical clutch.

Here is the bike now- built up with gears- but if I put a motor on, I'd probably use a single freewheel and take all the shift stuff off- to keep it all really lightweight.
