I was thinking about getting a geared amped hub motor for the rear end of my front wheel drive recumbent.
The recumbent will be similar to the following except with a triangulated rear all steel.
I was hoping to put a disc cover on the rear wheel but didn't want to overheat the motor. Would only putting a disc cover over the spoked portion make it possible to do that? I may instead put a tailbox on it which would also cut some airflow but perhaps not as much. Anyone have any problems with covering up their hub motors?
