Yes, it’s why it comes with the OG Mad Hub package
Basically nothing, except the exposition of the motor, now Im not in Paris or flat city with clean roads. Maybe also the lack of power compared to a geared setup that I’m used to.
I have tried hub motor a little bit in the past. Here are a good upgrade and a step more for power !! Plus they heat less !
I like the free-rolling, I like the simplicity of DD system, and be able to use standard wheels is a big plus ! Also, the possibility to go home in cut off mode by simply pushing is awesome for me.
Less mechanical part etc. but, with the really bad road here, real hub motors will be better for my use (or even a nano gear drive … but it will take a lot around here). I would like to put them again in hub motor version to be fair,… but I got the DD conversion kit that coasts more than the hub itself so, I had to let it go because I’m afraid to use it and damage it… it’s why it’s laying around since last year.
