    Electric power for Wincheetah

    I have a Windcheetah recumbent trike which I would like to fit with an electric assist motor

    I also have a trice QNT which I have fitted with a bionx motor.

    The Wchch cannot be fitted with the usual type of hub motor because of the split rear drive System with the wheel on a stub axle.

    Some years ago I heard of a friction drive system which would in theory possibly fit on
    The Wchch. An alternative of dual front power hubs would probably be difficult to fit with a braking system and would be very heavy.

    Has anyone any ideas or suggestions - apart from just getting fitter!

    How about a mid-chain drive motor, instead of a hub motor?

    Thanks, I will look into this a bit more, although the clearances available on the Wchch are very tight.
