Hi,
yeah it is intended only as an idler, but you have a few options to turn it into a drive pulley.

You could mix it with my spool design here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:744681, or another motor attachment.

Pololu also have what they call a scooter wheel adaptor (eg here https://www.pololu.com/product/2674), that bolts onto anything with a 608 size bearing, so if you just leave the bearing size at the default setting the hub will mount to the pulley.
