Your conversion is correct but you must have done a lot of pedaling and coasting downhill to get such high mileage.

How about a mileage test on flat ground?

what motor are you using?
I have seen drive systems like yours through the cranks before.

I love Felt biikes too.

Hey, do you have any organized motorized bicycle racing in France aside from the Solex racing?

Have you seen
