Default Re: Pedal Faster

26incher, if you are saying get a huge front sprocket and small rear sprocket for the pedal side, fixies are already set that way, and its not possible to pedal assist at cruising speed with that gear ratio. Elmo, installing any kind of jackshaft on a fixie requires serious custom fab and machine work. My suggestion to the guy who started this thread is this: if you want to pedal assist while cruising, cruise slower. While under engine power, just decelerate until you are going slow enough to pedal assist.
