Got the smallest possible sprocket for theRXL-RD5 IGH – 17 teeth. And a 48 tooth Luna Eclipse chainring. Want to gear the bike for more top-end…but will make adjustments to the chainring as necessary. No reason not to allow the motor to fully wind out in top gear.
Decided to go with a larger cog. I now have the full range available for this hub: 17, 18, 19, and 20. I have the 20T mounted and all is well.
Do not be concerned about all the loose zip ties – still working on getting all the wiring and cables into their final position. Also, the stem will hold a short bar for the dashboard. The frame has been cold set at the dropouts to accommodate the 135mm Sturmey Archer RXL-RD5 5 speed IGH. Set up the dashboard for the right wheel size and a few other customizations.
Still to come are the side plates that will cover the battery and that part of the “triangle” where the battery lives.
