Cycloidal drive

This is a good way to slow a motor down to human cadence speed. Electric motors just don't work well unless they are moving very fast.

Overall reduction ratio of 64:1 with the 3kW
kit and an overall ratio of 40:1 with the 6kW
kit. From a 7500rpm motor!

The grease interval is 100 miles when
 1cc is injected through the fill port.
