It make you feel like superman. properly geared for the bike (road or mountain) it is pure enjoyment.

So freewheeling cranks. Where? How much?

The white industries unit is great under pedal power & with 3 pawles it is rock solid....the fault there is the single bearing suport when it is freewheeling.(under motor power & not pedaling) it gets very flopy very fast. does not insire confidence.
the Crossfire is a huge step up from the Dicta & still keeps the sprocket running true, has 3 pawles for secure pedaling & are reasonably priced. I haven't actually used the crossfire in this application yet....but I have nothing but confidence it is the solution.
Unless recumpence shows his full bearing supported freewheeling crank design....That would be the ultimate fix.
