Rear Hub Motor from eBikeKit.com
In my long range plan, I wish to move the front hub motor to the rear as well as mount the new Bosch battery in the bike's frame triangle which should help distribute the load from it's high rear center of gravity to a more balanced COG. To that end I've puchased a rear 6 cassette rear hub motor from eBikeKit.com. The plan is to replace the front wheel with either the Tidalforce front hub battery or with a front wheel with disc brakes. The new motor has disc brake mounts and a new disc brake unit. That should help eliminate the rapid brake wear that I'm experiencing now and hopefully improving stopping distances!
