    Yeah.....would not trust that under any load.
    Bicycles donít have motors or batteries.

    Ebikes are not bicycles

    well yeah... but it got me home!

    I was lucky enough to:
    a) break a chain and not smash my nuts or knee
    b) do it in a location where it was mostly flat or downhill back home

    but didn't have the parts to get it fixed right. I was able to pedal through the flats and up gentle hills like that, had to push up the real hills but it still got me home a lot faster than no chain.

    Pretty inventive I must admit. Looks like no derailleur cage to get hung up on which helped, but I guess that also means you couldn't shorten the chain or it wouldn't reach?
