I've had a few geared-hubmotor bikes and built a mid-drive a couple of months ago. The mid-drive has no suspension, thin tires, and is one fast bike. That led me to believe that putting the mid-drive motor on a full suspension bike would be so much better. Well, my community bike shop closed and bicycles have been raining down on me. Now I have two decent FSMTB's as donors. Which led me to a thought, I could put a DD hubmotor on one of them and have a head to head comparison of hub motor and mid-drive bikes. Why would I choose a DD hub motor? My thinking is if I put the bike on a training stand and pedal I can generate electricity and charge the battery. Would that work?
