Awesome Built! Congrats Deven !
Reconfigured the drive. A middle and left side BB drives the left wheel, and I've ordered an electric kit that I'll have laced onto the right wheel.
Will you always drive it with the electric assist on?
Possibly, as I was worn out just from test riding this thing around the block.
That will be so much fun, you'll stay out all day. I know I would pack a lunch if I was going for a ride. It'll need a second battery for extended rides.
You just keep raising the bar Deven!
Is the Stude' going to be driveable by your kiddo too?
I'm also curious:
1. Which car has tighter turning radius, Prius or The Hybrid Studebaker?
2. Will the Prius also get the same conversion one day?
I've always admired the old Studebakers and
until recently would occasionally work in the old Studebaker factory in Hamilton, Ontario when it was used as a Film and TV studio.
Ope... renegging on your pedal power only?
Yeah, I've got an electric kit I'm having laced up into one of the wheels now.
Quick update. I found these Mooneyes at a bike swap meet, which I hope to make work to cover up these bicycle wheels.
The mooneyes will be perfect to hide the hub motors
you could probably use two, with two controllers and one throttle.
Technically there is a setup to use 3 engines at the same time from one throttle/pedal assistance.
Never heard of that. I was thinking hub motors, those don't work quite right sharing one controller. They either don't sinc up, or one almost acts like a generator. I have a bike frame I want to put two hub drives on.
Switched out the shrunken head for a real hood ornament that I had that fit the curve of the hood fairly well. I'll have to place that head somewhere else on the build.
That's the obvious use. We'll see.
There are ways to sync them - there are at least a dozen bicycles out there with properly synced 2 and 3 motors (3 motors - two hub motors & and one BB motor - crazy, but it can work)
Yeah I about got the math right for my idea. I'd need like 74 18650s with two 1k watt hub motors to keep a cruising speed of around 30mph and a top speed around 45. I don't wanna keep derailing, though.
So, front drive or rear drive?
