    Electra Townie Commute 8D and adding a Magic PIe Vector 5

    Planning on using the rear mount hub with torque arm (s), would this be compatible?

    I fester,

    And welcome to the forum! :-)

    Just a few thoughts from a MP5 rider... Most important is to have the 135mm (or a hair over) spacing between your drop arms. Especially with an aluminum frame. You don't want to be speading anything if possible. And also with aluminum, TWO torque arms would be a must. Lastly I have a 7 speed with just a single gear up front. It allows me to fuax pedal up to about 10 mph easily, but I sometimes wished I had the gearing to pedal along at higher speeds... just saying. Depends on your mission. Some might say disc brakes would be an advantage, but with upgraded rim brake pads, and the Pie's regeneration. I've had no issues.

    Use the link in my signature to see my application of the Pie...
