Clever idea: use the rim of the wheel as part of the motor.

There is a working prototype that has 500 watts of power and only weighs 26 pounds, but is probably going to be prohibitively expensive:

Cool tech, thanks... We are going through a renaissance period in the electric bike world and I think this and friction drive are the future. I love how clean the bike looks especially with disc brakes in the front and regen brakes in the back.
