Bike-E Recumbent rear hub motor questions...

Mid drive would be best but it's too much money and fabricating. So, I am gonna go with a REAR 20" Geared hub motor from ebikekit. I already have a spare 20A controller and 48v Lifepo4 battery to use. Anyone else use a rear motor on their bikee ?

I've never done a rear hub motor - but theoretically it's better because the rear end is stronger against the torque stresses than a front fork is.

I'm using e-bikekit on two bikes and am happy with their quality.

thanks. Only drawback I see of doing a rear motor on a Bike-E recumbent is losing the factory Sachs 3-speed rear internal hub. Also, top speed wont be very fast due to the 20" wheel...

My bikes:
+ Red EVG [My Bike] (36v 500w rear E-bikekit and 22A Infineon Controller, 48v 10ah LifePo4 Batt)
+ Black EVG [Wifes Bike] (48v 1000w rear Goldenmotor, (4) 12ah SLA Batt's)
+ Red EVG [Spare Bike] (48v 1000w rear Goldenmotor, (4) 12ah SLA Bat
