I am seeing people say they get anywhere from 1,500-10,000 rpm from their sg's. mine spins 120-180 rpm max. How can i get my wheel jamming like the others?
Such high speeds are easy to achieve with smaller rotors My MG1 was the fastest motor I built which went over 8000rpm with a 5" rotor (very fast for a rotor that size)

MG-1 : 8550rpm, 712hz, 193km/h - YouTube

For a bike wheel you can expect it will be a lot slower, but remember there will be more pulses per revolution because you have more magnets It might be slower, but that doesn't make it any less powerful!

I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
