Default Re: A big Canadian Hello

thanks for the response everyone,

It does seem as though the front end hub motor is the easy solution but i have my doubts as to traction, especially with the greater torque output of an electric motor. not to mention the style aspect and the my tendency to always do things the hard way. (just to keep life interesting)

I am of the belief that a hub motor will create less resistance than a pedal chain driven system, does anyone here think that the difference is substancial enough to worry about?

I think for the sake of style and performance ( the rear tire being wider and carrying more weight) i would still like to go for the rear tire hub motor. I am going to try and contact this Justin fellow and go from there. I will start a new thread in the appropriate field and post a link here. thanks for the help everyone!!
