liveforphysics wrote:That's not how it works my friend. Anytime you increase wheel diameter, you simply decrease the power the motor is capable of outputting. If you find yourself in a situation with a motor that has too low of a kv, you simply increase the voltage to reach the RPM you require.

I wet my 'Depends' above 50mph on a bicycle, so I'll leave the Top Speed without melting to young bucks like Luke and Doc. I was looking more to compare acceleration at different speeds, efficiency (although I expect similar results), some handling at those speeds - just to compare and contrast on the butt-dyno.

Are you planning on making a custom machined steel torque arm droppout to be compatable and simply bolted into the frame replacing the stock ones?

The bike pictured a couple of posts ago is already one of my favorite hub motor powered bikes on the forum. Keep up the good work.
Kepler wrote:I really need to try a front battery mount setup. Makes sense to balance the bike weight with that battery position when using a hub motor. Biggest issue in my opinion is keeping the bike looking reasonably elegant. The Pelican case setup does the best job in keeping the build tidy I have seen so far.
