    i now have all my motors. i have checked the speed and they are all aound 125rpm. doing some numbers i come up with 243mm/sec with a 150mm crank. they are 250 watt. i assume this is continously rated. a lot more for short periods. i dont know the stall torque as i have not got a way of easily checking it. at 250 watts and 125 rpm i come up with a torque of around 20nM at a crank length of 150mm. this seems a bit low to me. or is that the motors are used in more of a intermittent mode.?

    In my case, for example, I get 60rpm on the output shaft of the gearbox, with a 10cm lever, for me it is enough
