Re: New ebiker need an advice

I would not dismiss a geared hub motor as opposed to a mid-drive. Advantages are it is simpler, so less to go wrong. Your drive train will last longer. It is cheaper.

Cheers

I read about dual power motors but found out they are not on a road even when they are working on 250w power. I think only about solutions which are hard or impossible to detect during police ...
