Default Re: What is the quietest motorized kit

Depends on whether they are brush, brushless or geared. The weight is the issue as they are really heavy due to the windings and it is rotating weight also. There is no way I would ever consider a Tidal Force type bike that has the battery in one hub and the motor in the other. There is too much chance of chipping the rim and having all kinds of hassle as a result.
