I was thinking of a "Twin" motor configuration so that the motors were physically connected before the chain going to the rear wheel. The advantage is that you can find motors that run at lower rpms and that makes gearing easier.
But the idea of "Twin" Hub motors is good too.
Any time you can get the "Efficiency Peak" and the "Power Peak" to be the same (which means a pretty low current limit on the controller) then that "spreads the joy" of improved efficiency across the entire powerband.
It's better to have two hub motors running at half the amps than one hub motor that is overamped. It's just overall BETTER.... (there is NEVER a case when overamping bets oversizing... oversizing always wins)
But the added weight might be annoying... however, if you got two small, light weight and high efficiency hub motors that might be really good... (it would even improve the weight issues that people have with these 5304's that weigh in at 25 lbs)
