Your bicycle dropouts are giving you a message... use body armor while testing!
That is no joke friend... I have body armor and I dont even own a motorcycle! When I flew over the bars on my chopper bike I got hardly a scratch - only spot that hurt was my thigh where it got caught in the handlebars.
I know those drops look bad - but they actually dont hold the motor. There are steel plates that bolt on either side that completely surround the axle and hold it vertically and horizontally. Axle nuts are not even needed.
10 bucks that you ll never look back after playing with Hal´s hub motor.

I think it is going to be great - especially in 20" with 24S.

I also have a feeling that someone is eventually going to need a 36FET with some of these to really max it out

Fark... I need a controller like right now. I am tired of waiting for myself to produce them.
Someone please sell me a controller 18 fet, 24 fet, 36 fet... I dont really care... any of them will do.
I need a fix to hold me off until I can get a line going. All of my manufacturers are dragging their feet.

While he is trying to actually get his pos non-frock running I will blast off down the road leaving him in a shower of gravel and cigarette butts.

A 20" wheel is the only way to roll for straight acceleration... BUT there are two major problems with that. First the damn pedals slap the ground and second it just looks horrible. Horrible. Horrible.
