What do people think of the OneMotor kit? The kit will work on anything from recumbents, folding bikes, tandems, three wheelers and even regular road or mountain bikes. The OneMotor system weighs 2kg and gets up to 40 miles of range. The power and speed is controlled using a phone app.

The OneMotor kit looks like a friction drive electric kit. Interesting concept which has also been used for petrol powered motorized bikes. I'm wondering how friction drive performs on an electric bike. Possibly there is finer control on the throttle than a petrol powered bike and thus less slippage. Interesting to see reviews on the OneMotor kit if anyone here has used it.

It attaches to the mount quickly and easily using retracting magnetic "bolts". When you install the OneMotor kit, you set the correct distance and the software determines exactly how much pressure to apply to the tire. It adapts on the fly as you ride. When I rode a particularly bumpy road, I could feel the motor reset the pressure to maintain contact and I never felt any tire slippage. Aside from the first time I used the motor, I have not noticed any tire wear at all.

Friction drives like this (like Rubbee, etc) have been around for a while. This one also sells as a complete kit on the Brompton foldable bike.


Probably the only downside is it will eat out your tire quicker in the long run. Usually friction drives run on the back wheel and this is probably recommended. If the front tire was to blow it could be a really bad outcome. If the back tire blows you will hopefully just skid to a halt.

Pretty neat but not at the price they are asking.
