I ran across this article and it backs up what I have been saying … why I favor hub motors over crank drive motors on a trike. It does not cover one of my main objections to crank drive but it does cover one important factor I never thought of … the matter of stability. Having all that weight mounted out on the end of the boom effects the handling and stability of the trike. On the other hand a hub drive in the rear wheel makes the trike more stable.
