thanks - am rather impressed - that hub looks fine.
And I like the bike it's on.
Battery might be a bit more "out front" for me since I'm a flatbar person.
Yes it is smaller and much quieter than the ones Yosepower supply (Jiabo/Bafang)
He's called Sparky - thanks, it is a very comfortable tourer and great vfm too
I have to say after 20 years of Campag kit, the Shimano shifters were a very pleasant surprise, even the basic Tiagra felt much nicer than the Veloce I'm used to. The mini-Vs also get the thumbs up from me.
The current Swytch batteries being smaller would probably suit you then!

No not hub drive per se, just that the direct hub drives (as opposed to geared) tend to be at the higher power end - 500/1000W which are illegal, as is the speeds most of them bomb around at (>25 kph)
