How did you feel about the heavy weight of this motor verse running two 80100? [My guess is two 80-100s should offer similar power, but maybe i'm underestimating the extent to which this bigger mass can take very large bursts].
I'd say this'd handle 9kw much easier than a twin 80100. Also requires less reduction... to get ~5kw out of a 80100 reliably you need to spin it, FAST. ie ~9krpm. that means it'll likely need about 20:1 reduction, or a bit less for trike size wheels. pretty much impossible with 1 stage. this is probably quieter too. Still... im curious how it'd compare to a twin 80100 too. maybe a triple 80100 could beat it?

just a thought, how about useing a 2 stage reduction from the wheel to your pedals? that way you could use more 'normal' sized chain rings?
