    I was just looking at Schwinn Electric bikes and they have a driveshaft to the pedals also. I'd like to see one.

    Oh man, ever since I got so stoked to build a motored bike I have had my head buried in bike links, this forum, and anywhere else I could find idea's. I don't know how I missed this drive system but wow I like it. Thanks for all the links, I really appreciate it.

    The problem would be rigging a no it wouldn't work with the SBP shifter kit.

    I've only seen them, previously, on commercial bikes. Good to see it's now an aftermarket part.

    An idea that's been around a long time.

    Might not work with the SBP shift kit but you could quite easily build your own jackshaft assembly (if you have the tools) that would work with this :) Downside efficiency with gear drive isn't as good as chain drive.
