Freewheel: When coasting, I can't even feel it.

Motor sticking out: I have a friend that has a Staton friction drive with same engine. We measured both and they stick out the same.

Would I recomend it....... I will post a review when I have 100 miles on it. I'm hoping for the gearbox to quiet down.

Staton says the gear box will be quietier after 100 miles. I sure hope so.....
Looking forward to your review Strotter. Is it a wet or dry GB? I really like the way axle mounts look.
