Default Re: Friction motor on hills

What is a "steep hill"?

I had a Bike Bug (70's friction drive) and it didn't have a lot of power, but it never slipped, even when I ran it in wet grass then on the pavement.

I would think a lot of it would depend on total weight and percentage of grade.

Does the Staton-Inc. drive ever slip?
