Brushless motor? Answered

I have a 300 watt 2212 brushless motor, my question is whether i can reduce it, to use it for an e-bike?

Is it possible to generate enough torque?

After some research, all I could find was this video of someone who tried it:

In the comments they say it was ultimately not sizeable enough to really work.

I am honestly not too familiar with these motors, but my best guess is that this type of motor gives you a lot of speed, but it probably does not give enough torque for this application.

If you have two or three... it may work. Calculate the friction that your weight on a bike would give. Then, calculate the amount of motors to install.
