Now back to the Beginning, or how it all started:
Happy Holidays, All.
Let's assume for a moment that Christmas has been good to me and I'm going to get to build a Greyborg Warp with a Cromotor. http://www.greyb.org
There are many choices to make along this road. Let's visit them and see what folks have to say about these choices. I've read most of what I can find about the 'Borg, but there are many things I have not found on these topics.
Some of my Use Cases:
a) commuting, hilly 13 miles each way, up to 12% gradient, 1200 feet rise one way, 600 feet the other.
b) camping, various terrain from streets to dirt roads and the occasional trail in the desert or Sierra, etc mountains.
I would prefer to keep this a bicycle and avoid having it be too much a motorcycle, insofar as practical. Somewhere between Bicycle and MoPed, perhaps.
Some Choices to make (there will be more later, pick a few to start):
1) motor - Cromotor, other hubmotor, or RC?
2) forks - Standard 'dual disc' offering, or other?
3) crankset - Schlumpf or ?? what gearing??
4) rims and tires - bicycle, moped, or light motorcycle?
