We can just create a throttle that applies more or less power to the front wheel to compensate for the KV.
Ok - forget what I said... with individual throttle control we can make any KV mismatch work.
I have just the idea too... I think we can use the CA for this.

Would 2810R + 24s be too much? What is a safe maximum voltage the controller can handle?
What would be the top speed for that maximum voltage? (unfortunately Justin's simulator doesn't have the 2810)

I had posted on your HS thread about converting a trike, but never heard back - that's OK, as I got involved in other things for a while.
I do remember this - sorry for not getting back. I spend all my time with customer service and never get out on the boards anymore.
I'm still planning to convert my Terratrike (20" rear wheel), and this was almost the solution. 24S Lipo through the 20" setup would have hit the mark almost perfectly for my purposes, at least on paper. Then I noticed that it was a front wheel...
I would just go with a rear 2810.... the 2812 is just insanely low KV - even at 24S
So my question is this:
Can a front hub readily be converted to a rear one? I imagine that it would at least require changing the cover on the drive side and replacing the axle. Probably not an easy task, but it never hurts to ask.
The short answer is no - unless you want to forgo the chain or press in a rear axle. Fronts are also a lot more narrow.
I have had really bad luck with my previous attempts at wheelbuilding. Do you have a way of (for a fee) relacing one of the 26" kit wheels with a 20" rim? I'll check in with LBS as well to see what they'd charge to lace it up, but my guess is they don't keep spokes that short.
The 20" build is pretty darn easy - it is a zero cross - meaning the spokes just radiate straight out. Any bike shop should be willing to do this for $30 I am going to have to pass on the oportunity - I am already losing money on these hubs... I dont wnat to lose anymore
The price is definitely right - if there's a way to get a rear wheel in 20" (either wind is fine) at a reasonable added cost, I'm in.
I might bite anyway and build an MTB with the 26" kit. And then there's always the Crystalyte route...
