My bike weights 32kg with 16s 10ah headway, it would probably have weigthed 3-4kg less with a RC drive, but I think it has more potential with the hubbie. I'm all for a race dirt tracker style
Videos are coming out quite well!
It looks very good, but its a shame that the rc didnt work out for you,
Whiplash wrote:Awesome! Im telling you, its all over for the RC motors once some more people build this type of bike. Its just so cool having huge climbing power AND the top speed of a nice hub combined with the simplicity of one as well. I know I will never do it any other way..
as regards "its over for rc motors" na dont think so
you have all the benefits of a mid mounted hubby going through the rear gears but at a fraction of the weight and cost , my first rc bike was only 19kg and the one Im working on now will be about the same and hopefully nearly silent , except for the dam freewheel I got, its a clicker
