After someone mentioning the voilamart motor kit I bought one. I assumed this poster was speaking from experience but now I regret buying it. what a waste of money on more than one consideration. Maybe it's just my legs but I've ridden for many years a 9c DD front motor with no problem in UNPOWERED mode. Yes it's heavier than a geared motor and you can feel the weight difference but I've never experienced anything like the Voilamart motor. I can't really manually pedal it ! Could there be something inside the motor that is causing such resistance? Surely any company that made such a monstrosity is not looking out for its clients as we all know we will resort to peddling when things go down during a ride. I can't can't express enough just how resistive this thing is!!! It's as if it's got brakes really gripping iot and more (no i don't have any brakes engaged). Any food for thought on how I could pssible save this purchase and relieve some of this resistance. This motor is the same size as the 9C was so it should be that resistive magnetically and running unpowered...I mean the axle will barely turn.
