Re: Running a rear hub with Lightningrods GNG? pros and cons

Re: Help wanted- Paraplegic with a need for more torque.

is price a big issue?

I'm a incomplete paraplegic myself and am a fan of mid drive setups yrs they are harder to setup and more maintenance
but are hard to beat for off-road application.. have you checked cyclone kits out possibly gng
