Default Re: weight on bikes

I am a little over 300 and I have a 48cc that hauls me just fine. It is a little sluggish off of the line but with minimal pedal assist I can top most hills at 20mph. Make sure that your pedal side is geared high for pedal asst., too low and you can't keep the bike up to speed and it will stall. My most recent build has a 48t rear sprocket and it does seem to work better on the low end and I'm not losing as much high end as with the 50t...Kelly
I'm racin' Spitfire, turnin', poppin' wheelies, burnin' evil chasin' pop,pop, pop,pop,pop.... (The Pixies-Tony's theme)
