Kepler wrote:My advise is not to write off friction drive as a lame duck. Sure, friction drive is not a good choice for off-road mountainbike riding but for commuting at 40kph and and a range of 20km, a friction drive setup is a more then capable contender. If you want the lightest weight solution that has close to zero impact on the way the standard bike rides, a well engineered friction drive is hard to beat. Have a read of some of the very informative friction drive threads on this forum and you will soon see that the old friction drive issues mentioned above have well and truly been solved.
Well I had just figured since it was going on a mountain bike that off-road would be in its future since commuting was not specified.

Finally I made up my mind and bought a Bafang 36v 500w rear hub from bmsbattery.

What battery configuration are you using? What's your typical range?
