many members are asking about it actually as some cannot stretch their rear swingarms or don't want to. This could be an 1freewheel option. Maybe disc brake not possible. Still OK for trikes and maybe bikes with rim brakes. Would the wheel be still central?
I am curious about your opinion. Or anyone elseFarfle wrote:One 5404 is reserved, two left, and 3 5403s unclaimed.
The motors position left-to-right on the axle is not critical, while machining new axles the dimensions can be changed. in regards to the motor themselves being wider, if i make the axle 135mm, the only way it can change is towards the cassette side, so yes, either a slimmer cassette or a single speed freewheel would be the only thing that work in that situation.
shouldn't be a big deal either way, the motor can be moved left-to right on the axle, and the disk brake can either be shimmed out, or machined back (a small amount, already caliper clearance issues) so alignment shouldn't be very hard.
