Default Re: Shift Kit Question

I had a new idea- is it feasible to use an internally-geared hub, flip the wheel to make the drive on the left side, and bolt a 44t sprocket on the hub's sprocket (or weld, though a bracket looks possible to me) and just use the standard motor-to-wheel setup without a jackshaft? No offense to your product Ghost, I like it alot having ridden a build already, but for an interim until I can afford the $150 for the kit it would be good.

The only issue I see is gear reduction. The motor to 44t would be standard and therefore work, but would typical 3 to 5-speed internal gearing have a proper lo and hi ratio to work?

Thanks, if this is feasible i'll be riding soon
