Installed this 24V 250W 8Fun electric motor from LEED on the front wheel of my 24" Tandem using 13g spokes supplied by Clean Republic. The motor was able to assist on a 6% grade climb for about 500 meters carrying a total weight of about 250 lbs (2 adults). It is cost effective if you do not want to buy a more expensive 36V or 48V motor. Since I just bought this one 2 weeks ago and only used it for about 6 kilometers I cannot tell yet if it will last for a long time. All I know is that I have been using exactly the same motor (from Clean Republic) almost every day, all weather, for my other bike since 2010 and that one is still working until now 2014 (5+ years). It should last for a long time in rain, snow, and icy conditions as my other 8Fun motor.

The best planetary hub on the market. I take it everywhere in the rain & mud. It keeps on running as if it was new. The best motor money can buy.
