So is that a motor contained in that housing? If so, thats pretty impressive that they got up to 60mph.

It's a gearless, brushless electric motor mounted to the spokes of a bike wheel. Similar to this:

That's the impressive part. If you watch the dyno, that thing is making 50-70 ft/lbs steady-state, and peaking at around 120 ft/lbs.

On a bicycle.

That's pretty much the most wanton and gratuitous display of senseless power I have ever seen.

3 ft/lbs per lb is a major letdown? That's probably close to the highest power/weight ratio of any vehicle ever created by man.

I am thinking the builder was like, "Oh lets take some weight out of these hubs. I will drill these holes and connect them like this. Oh Jesus, I just decorated it with penises."
