Default Thoughts/Experiences w/ HY22 built in 44t Wheel

Hi there,

What are your opinions on this 44t built in sprocket wheel? Does anyone have any experience with these? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Don't buy anything from those crooks! I'll not comment one way or the other on the qualities of mag rims, but I will say that Kingsmotors, gasbike, and bikeberry are all notorious crooks! I also am also of bad opinion of SpookyTooth. Call Lynn at www.mbrebel.com she will build you a super strong wheel, and hook you up with a sprocket adapter for it. Manic Mechanic www.mmbikeparts.com makes very high quality hub adapters and sprockets. I cannot recommend you do business with crooks, sorry.

Nice reply, but does anyone have an opinion that is relevant to the question. No one questioned anybody's ethics, the question was about the mag wheel.

I'm a big fan of mag wheels, but I wouldn't buy one with a built-in sprocket. It would make adjusting the chain alignment almost impossible.

Cheap Chinese sprocket, all they did was drill slots in it so it could mount to the disc brake holes. Don't get it. Get mag wheels off eBay.

I used a jackshaft setup so that both the motor and the pedals drive the same chain, which drives the rear wheel with an ACS Fat freewheel.

it is just the kit sprocket drilled to fit the mags you can buy on ebay and comes prefitted, you can even see the bolts if you look on the site and zoom in the pictures. just buy the mags yourself and get a top hat adaptor to run both disk brake and sprocket on same side if you are going that way

Ask motomagz about mag wheels and their drawbacks. Oh and that wasnt opinion, it was and is a fact, the companies I mentioned are proven to be bad business, by countless members on this forum.
The wheelset you linked to is junk, the company selling it won't stand behind their subpar product.

Mags look good, but ain't so easy to pull off on a MB. If you can find something that actually is purpose built, go ahead. But don't spend good money on garbage. Look around with the Search, you'll find the number of people running mags is very low,while the number of those same folks who have had problems is quite high.

I too had my heart set on some mags, but I've seen reasons not to use them prove out. How fast do you pedal a bike with your .2hp legs? A decent ChinaGirl will run at 35. What is built for one ain't meant for the other. You're already pushing every part of the bike WAAAY past it's design parameters, why compound the problems with self destructing wheels?

The seller on ebay mzmiami(search ebay) runs those in just about every build and he does a lot!

He is a good vendor at least in my experience, got stuff on order now.
