Do any of them regenerate power/charge to batt when pedaling or downhill???
Not that I know of, but I would bet it's coming.

To put multiple motors on your bike, it will require a special controller to handle the power distribution to the multiple motors.  What this does is put X% power to the front and Y% power to the mid or rear motor when you twist the throttle or push the leaver to activate the power.


My next ebike will probably be AWD - dual hub motors.  Or I may just get a front kit for my Rad. 
They make a front hub kit for the Rad?

They're generic.  A front wheel is a front wheel, just match the wheel size.



I meant getting power to the front wheel.  I have the RadRover but never thought of trying to get power to the front wheel as well.

You just need a separate controller for each motor.  There are devices to synch them up like you describe (such as Cycle Analyst), but it isnít required. 

From there you can drive them both from the same throttle, or have a separate throttle for each.

I suppose.  Personally, I think one controller would be best.  If you have two controlers and one is at 50% and the other is 10% your pushing the 10%.  It is up to you.  Personally, one controller for both motors is the best method.

I bought a quiet cat which with the cart and a few extras was 3500. I used it going bear hunting in the spring and packed a bear out on the cart. It works awesome and they are really quiet unless you have the trailer on. I got mine st Marieís saw and cycle shop. Owner lives in Calder Idaho and says thatís what he uses 99 percent of the time up there. He has all the toys at his disposal so that sold me on it. country around Calder can be really steep. Pro tip donít ride it like a dirt bike 😂 I jumped on it and just hit the throttle once I started going up the mountain you will lose battery fast compared to doing just a little bit of pedaling. I think he said the trailer was good to 350 pounds donít recommend testing that limit either ha ha. I did and broke the post that holds the cart. Cheap lesson but itís a real pain in the but getting any replacement parts from quiet cat I will say there customer service not impressive. I just go back to original shop for stuff now.

If anyone is looking or on the fence on a 24inch Bakcou Mule I have a guy that I can put you in touch with on some special pricing going on. It is not my deal to post so I won't, but he is a straight shooter and great to deal with.
