As always, beautiful work Justin. I agree with Tom. I'm concerned about the shear force on those nylon teeth. But, as you say, if the ebike hubs handle comparable torques, it should work on this as well. Another concern is the press fit pins in the aluminum plate planet carrier. I tried that on my first rendition with dowel pins pressed into a steel disc. The pins elongated the holes but the catastrophic failure was one of the planets galling on the dowel pin and seizing. Good luck, my man.
