Are two motors better than one?!?
I started to install my new rear motor over the weekend and ran into a couple of issues. First, the disc wheel rubbed against the frame. A quick email to ebikekit.com got me a response. I need to put more spacers in the axle to move the disc away from the frame. Simple.
That worked pretty well except that I can't get the disc caliper to center on the wheel now. However, while this is going on, I've got an ebike with two hub motors! This is highly unusual and needs to be documented! (Of course, I won't be riding it like this, but it sure is fun to look at!
