Default Re: Here's something I did the other day

I see the motor now. I have elec friction drive motors and they are cool but badly limited. Miserable to ride on a wet road not because they are elec but because there is almost no friction with the tire. I also think there is probably a lot of lost energy that a chain drive would capture.

You should know you run both, do you lose a lot of potential energy with the friction drive.
