Default Re: Bike with a rear shock

Easily, you will just need to account for chain growth if you mount the engine in the triangle a decent spring loaded chain tensioner will do this. Mounting it on a rack above the rear wheel is a bad idea, the motor is unspring weight, will have a negative impact on the suspension performance, this is one of the big draw backs for the electric hub motor users with their big rear hubs in suspension bikes.
