I have a Giant Talon mountain bike that i would like to install a small 250 to 350 watt geared hub motor in the front. Only problem is that the bike has 27.5 wheels and 32 spokes and so far all the hub motors I,ve seen have 36 spokes. So far my search for an aftermarket rim has been unsuccessful. Maybe someone here might know if such a rim exists. The Talon has 2.25" wide tires. The reason I'm considering the front hub is to use as a winter commuter. The front hub would make the bike 2wd-electric up front and human powered at the back wheel. I live about 10 miles from my work and the winters here can be harsh, temp's of 30 below or less are common. I would not ride all the way to work, rather the bike would be in the back of my truck so I could park for free in a residential area about 1 or 1 1/2 miles from work. I did consider the 8fun motor and may have to go that route.
