Pike's Peak Solution

"Pike's Peak Solution" 4 hp, 20-to-1 gear reduction designed by Matt Shumaker in Chicago for the Quattrocycle. It allows the Quattrocycle to go "anywhere a bike can go" and perhaps beyond. Commissioned by Aaron Rosenzweig.

The legal limit for cycles in America is 1 horse-power (750 watts). This motor can be stepped down to be in legal limits. We will post real world usage tests when they are available.
