Electric Bike Chain Drive Motors
The traditional electric bike chain drive motor, also called an e-bike gear reduction motor, has long been the powerplant of choice for e-bike enthusiasts who prefer raw torque and uphill climbing ability to the sometimes higher overall speed offered by hub motors. In addition, many riders still relish the pedal bike feel of the chain drive system. For instance, the simple but relatively powerful Currie bike motor allows the use of standard derailleur gearing.
Monster Scooter Parts offers a variety of electric bike chain drive motor types for the eZip and IZIP brands of electric bicycles manufactured by Currie Technologies, a respected leader in the e-bike industry. The Currie bike motor (in all its versions) has long been a popular item. Garage mechanic and custom bike builders have also the e-bike gear reduction motor to be a dependable yet economical alternative to the pricier hub motor types.
