Default Re: For the friction drive guys

I have 2 bikes, one with a rack mounted chain drive and centered over the back of the bike. The other is a BMP friction drive that is off center. Other than the looks I don't feel any balance/performance difference than a centered mount. IMO, I don't think the result is worth the effort. Build your own...absolutely. There was a guy on the other board who built a really sweet FD using a 4" x1/4" aluminum square tube to make a channel. He cut one side off the tube and had a channel to make a great motor and spindle mount. Looked real solid. Hope this helps.
