Hubmotor quality

Post by » Apr 01 2018 6:35am

I own two Leafbike hubmotors and i love them, however, one spins more evenly (better balance) than the other. Is this typical of hubmotors or are some brands much better than others?

I assume that is with all the spokes and rim removed to test the motor itself? (the only way you can test this for the motor)

If not, then the imbalance may have nothing to do with the motor and could simply be a typical crappy prebuilt wheel.

If you're testing with the tire and tube on, it could be those, too, since many of them are not made all that well either.
