From Warren, he uses the hub similar to the Hanebrink, halfway between the BB and rear-wheel, but with chains on both sides. A left-side cog on the 6-hole disc-brake flange is chained to the BB, and the right-side freewheel is chained to the rear wheel sprocket-set/derailleur. Pic is from an earlier chain configuration, but the hub has remained in the same location.http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=23259&start=135#p540457
Saturday was a good day!
I started my Project 2 Ebike, which will be a LWB recumbent, a la "Recycled Recumbents", and the coolest thing is it will be full-suspension, using parts from my first downhill bikes, (Trek 9000 and Pro-Forx LT's), you old school dudes might remember those
Anyway I don't really understand the mondo gearing you can get on a recumbent and how you get your E-motor to use the bikes gearing?
Do you hook it up to the crank? or in between? What is the difference? do you get more gearing if you hook it up to the crank? I don't really get that bit.
Right now I'm planning on a Hubzilla as a mid-drive, 50 mph top speed and with enough batteries to commute just under 100 miles round trip (although I can charge it up at work, so I guess 50 miles range).
Very glad this group was started, I think mid-drives have more versatility, especially for range, than straight hubs (which was project 1)
