Re: X1 PRO GEN2

And the GNG Cyclone 3000 , 2019 version has upgrades from a regular Cyclone 3000 , There are even a few improvements since 2019 , most notably better chain ring spacers .

Yes I have a problem with destroying the splines on my Shimano style freehub body. I would like to use a XD driver , however the only cassettes that are available that I know of are only 11 speed and 12 speed cassettes, To me 11 speed is pretty much useless for a end consumer, great marketing ploy t...

Yes, the Splines are not deep enough . Yes , A machinest that is interested in high torque/power mid-drives is probably the one who makes both a freehub body and cassette. You will have to make room, that is where a machinest comes in . No pictures because it does not exist yet. What I am trying to ...

Re: Anybody measured a SRAM XD driver?

Both a XD Driver , and , a Shimano Freehub use Cassettes, the difference is the interface between the two . So When you look into the center of a Cassette that mates to a XD Driver Freehub Body, it is different from a Shimano / Sram splined one . I am taking about , in regards to Shimano/Sram Spline...

Well Dan, If you can get someone to make a swing arm for you , then that would be the best solution possible. Keep in mind you will want a bike with more modern head tube angles the faster you go.

The Advantage of an XD in regards to a mid-drive is that with an XD driver and cassette , the cassette will not chew up the splines of the XD freehub body ... because it does not have splines . I have nearly destroyed a Sram/Shimano type of freehub body spline interface between the cassette and the ...

Re: PaulD's lightweight mid drive development

Paul, Your narrow-wide chainrings , are they 11 speed ( chain ) or 12 speed ( chain ) chainrings ? I have noticed a need that we have in the mid - drive community . That is to be able to have higher road riding speeds and the ability to go up step grades we will be better off with 2 front chainrings...
