IMHO you will want to triangulate from the rear shock mount to the swing arm would be a lot of strain on it I would think.
but i'm sure it will be as well built as your previous bikes!
Thanks MattyCiii,MattyCiii wrote:Nice! Love that V4 drive in all black, and that Girvin girder fork is going to look the part. I'll be eager to hear how it performs at speed & on the bumps. *subscribed*
Glad you are having good luck with the HV-160. My current ride is also working OK with this controller.MattyCiii wrote:Also, I've had good luck (but only weeks - not months or years - of experience) with the HV-160 driving power through a Recumpense 5:1 reduction V4 drive to 20" rear wheels. Durable, reliable, never any jitter on startup. If you can keep the volts under 50 I'd suggest sticking with the HV-160, at least at first to see how it goes.

Thanks T!Thud wrote:Ive heard size doesn't matter.......but seriously, as long as it is ridgid enough to put the forces into the shock & not let the wheel deflect in odd directions you should be fine.
Thanks Warren.www.recumbents.com wrote:Not sure if you are planning this already, but you should mount the drive unit to the rear swing arm, not the main frame. Otherwise the drive chain changes length every time you go over a bump. -Warren.
