I tried in vain with CNebikes and evelbike.
they said they cannot offer the big motors with cross patterns. I also tried pushing them to do 3x or 4x on their front wheel... nope. seems I am the only one asking them
Custom build a wheel if you feel fruity enough I give it a go and done a 16-1.60 moped rim to a 36h disc front hub with a 3 cross pattern the spokes where expensive mind £70 for the set but they where custom made for me two sightly differing length 12gauge spokes with 6.4mm nipple heads opened the flange holes out on the hub from 2.5mm to 3.0mm and all went together decent.
I laced my hub motor too with a 1 cross pattern I used a 16-2.15 moped rim and 9 gauge spokes little bit more tricky to true I had to build a truing rig but other than that same as front but heavier.
Front wheel weighs 1.35kg no tyre rear weighs 11kg if I can remember correct but these moped rims and tyres dint play nice I've spent £70 on tyres that will not fit I had to go back to 20 inch far bike tyres luckily the extra girth off the wider than bmx style rim gives them a nice seated area to support the side wall so it's not bouncy castle time.
