Default Re: Falcon CFE-10 Hub

I've learned from experience that the best set up is a rear freewheel. These cheap hubs will not last with the significant amount of weight added to the bike and stresses while trying to stop. I fried my last shimano CB110 internals to the extent that it locked up the whole rear wheel while I was riding and bent the rear drop-outs. Long story short - they need to be adjusted and watched constantly. These motorized bikes ultimately need disc brakes especially if you live in a hilly area like me. My rear shimano hub was making all sorts of horrible sounds after 3 tanks of gas. cheers guys!!!!
