I tried reading it yesterday, but found the printing on the tire is unreadable without getting down on the floor, which is a no-go since I can't get up again. This trike is too awkward and heavy to put in my bicycle workstand. When it comes time to do real work on it I am going to put it on the motorcycle lift table but before it can go up there, the motorcycle that's on it must come down. Room rearrangement stuff like this is a real hurdle for me.

I wanted to do a mid drive for two reasons: 1. I thought it would be more interesting. 2. The trike's configuration makes a front hub impractical and it seemed a shame to lose the fancy 7-speed rear hub.

But this frame makes mid-drive TOO interesting, lol! And since I have decided the 7-speed hub is wrong for me, I have to change the hub anyways, so, hub motor it is.
