Default Murray bike to Rock Hopper for better brakes

Hello! Im Ted from Alto Michigan.

My first bike I put a motor on just had calipher brakes not welded to the frame and as I live on a hill I just wanted more stopping ability.

I thought after mistakes on that bike I knew what bike I should buy.

I am retired from steelcase and now just work part time so I am on a fixed income so I shopped for my bike at goodwill stores and second time around stores.

I found a used Rock Hopper for $65.00 ,the only thing I was looking at was the brakes which were in great shape.

The chinese bolted on perfectly,took 2 more links off the chain and I threw away the tensioner.

But I have a few issues---the bike is a little tall for me 1 or 2 inches,the pedals hug the frame and left pedal hits the pipe, so I will ask for help in the proper areas.
