Thanks a ton. It helps a lot seeing the same motor already mounted in a bicycle just like mine.

Using the tensioner on the peddle side??? I never thought about that, but that does solve the problem. I have seen spring loaded chain tensioners available for the peddle side. That solves that problem.

I already have the sprocket adapter, and sprocket on order from Pirate. They don't have a motor mount like that on their webbsite. I'd sure like to get one. Do you offer one, or can it be special ordered through a distributor like Pirate?
