Default Re: Friction drive and Knobbies? IS IT POSSIBLE +safe? Knobby nobby nobbies tire tir

I believe somebody posted a link of a functional rim drive in my vertical shaft post.. Do a you tube search for vertical shaft bike motor or browse the posts I have been it.

This is one of the best designs I have seen though I wonder how ANY friction drive works after
impact with a pothole and warping of rear tire occurs? They are fun and have less stuff to malfunction.
Look into the vertical shaft idea and you will get by cheaply if you can muffle it down.

Good luck...

I am still wondering if it is bad to ground out an engine with a kill switch!
