It will last for ever then.Running the motor under load with the gear naked on the post could chew up the post then even if you want to fit a bearing later it will be a bad fit on the chewed out post.

if it does work, maybe knuckles can stock a few of these for all of us hehe.
maybe bafang would start supplying them too if this works.
i totally agree with kurt, im worried knuckles might wear the post out.
