No, this motor comes from Cyclone as a direct drive no gear reduction box.panurge wrote:The big pulley is made from?
See the first two pages of this thread for the pulley modification process. http://www.endless-sphere.com/forums/vi ... =6&t=10337panurge wrote:I've not a lot of experience with belts but is 5mm enough?
5mm HTD belts are OK for up to just over 7kw according to the charts I've seen.

How does the weight compare between the motor+mount+wheel for this setup compared to the mac motor in the wheel?
I"m wandering if you have sacrificed some of the advantage of the non-hub set up by making the motor+mount part of the unsprung weight (i.e. mounting them on the spring arm)? That will mean that the inertia of the motor+mount will prevent the swingarm from moving (as) rapidly in response to a bump.
With no pedals, did you consider the idea of using the bottom bracket to hold a lay shaft?
