If dirt might be a problem, the plastic freewheel/roller assembly might still be a good choice even for a single speed rendition of the concept. Then, the assembly would be simpler and narrower, without spline tracks and a sled-axle to get dirty or jammed.

Oh, I'm just thinking of maybe the bump that manages to knock the wheel loose, or some other little moment when there's that movement where the motor will absorb some push.
