I would like to get some forum members opinions comparing direct drive hub motors to geared hub motors. I know there are videos explaining the difference along with pros and cons, but I would like some guidance from everyday users. Also, any suggestions as to which brand bikes around 2k and under have direct drive hub motors. I know Rad power bikes use them in some of their models. I did see someone on a Rad bike in my neighborhood wiz by me in with what looked like a direct drive hub design. I plan on doing mostly flat road recreational riding. Nothing extreme. No transporting the bike with my car. Thank you for your input!
