Does anyone know of a rear wheel drive kit for converting the Revive DX
to a power assisted ride?
Thanks

The Revive DX real hub is complicate enough as is. Why not have a moto
hub front wheel. I saw 20" wheel with motor in the hub on many bike
here in Thailand. See www.eco-brand.com

I never find a need for motor assisted for my Revive 8. After riding th
Revive for a few weeks my mussles developed and I found that It is ver
easy to ride 20 kms every day. I am 74 years old

One possibility would be building a wheel with a Sparc hub.

I prefer a rear wheel push when it comes to recumbents(semi's in the
case of the revive). I live in a hilly area and would like to get to
work without being soaked in sweat when i get there. Otherwise i
wouldn't care..infact my plan is to ride home but motor to work.
Thanks for the replies.

The SRAM SPARC SUCKS
The ECO-Brand Motor is laughable

Ya want an e-Motor that will climb a tree contact me at www.evsolutions.net
The last time I checked I was the only person who specializes in
electrifying bents.

Joshua,

We assumed that you were capable for speaking up for yourself.

The SRAM SPARC SUCKS


Does it have a vacuum attachment?

Please elaborate.

Tree climbing is not high on the priority list of most cyclists.

The Revive is not a recumbent, but a semi-upright.

There was a motorized trailer article in RCN some time back, (on a
Tailwind).Seemed like a practical place to get some push; you could carry stuff
for your commute, and wouldn't have to alter the bike much.

Yes a Rans Tailwind but i can't find any in town.
Is it hard to add a motor to your bike? is there a kit i can get to do
it myself?...all these bikes are so different.

Hi Tom

I have not been very active on ARBR these past few months and I am not
really into harvesting souls to electrify them....hmmm let me rephase that,
I am not into asking people into HPVs to add e-motors, I figure people will
find me if they want to go electric. I am getting bent stores and bent
manufacturers refer their customers to me...word of mouth and all that.

I looked at the GIANT website and that is one butt ugly semi-bent.

The ECO-Speed is a company in Oregon (what a surprise there) making a
mid-drive motor for BikeEs.

The SRAM SPARC is just funny and does not work very well, no torque and it
makes a whining noise with no speed to get excited about. One of their promo
lines was...it is like you have no motor at all. They pulled the line when
they realized people went faster without it.

As for climbing trees not being a high priority for most cyclists.

You know what I meant (hopefully), lots of torque.

I got into e-motors when I was 2/3 of the way up a hill and noticed not only
was I not going forward, but was now going backwards and figured this was
not a good thing and the cars behind me all started going backwards to avoid
running over me. I also noticed my front wheels lifting off the ground and
figured this was not a good sign either. This was when I decided tadpoles
need roll bars.
Now I take most hills just fine and find another route for the the ones I
cannot climb...I just curse at them (they do not curse back, I am weird not
crazy).
