Re: Ask a specific question
How do you feel about the friction drive. It would seem to me to be more reliable. Something about that chain, clutch, and sprocket just makes me think more to go wrong.
My friction drive electric is always in contact but just not running like the gasoline would be. I bet if you counter weighted it you could move it up and down with a brake lever. Or maybe a shift lever would work better.
