Right now we have belts and hubs both with their pros and cons and I’m not gonna argue about which one is superior all I want is choice.
I’ve been obsessed with the idea of using gears instead of belts ever since I saw someone using them here on this forum. I think if done right a gear drive could be easier to maintain in the long run even if it means higher costs upfront.
I’ve searched around about the matter but most avaible gear drive systems are for mtb but I really want something for street boards and there isn’t a lot of interest in them in general. The main cons with gears is alignement and noise which I think can be ironed out with R&D
I know that the small size of street wheels makes it challenging but I really hope that someone comes up with a user friendly design. I really want to contribute to R&D but I don’t know anything about gearing but I wouldn’t mind if someone enlighten me about the subject.
My dream is having a sort of sealed gearbox that also serves as a motor mount which can be made in different ratio that uses commonly avaible parts for simplicity.
Again I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel or anything i just want to see another viable option on the market
