After seeing motorized bikes all over the place out here, I've given in to my kidlike desire to have one of my very own and thus, I will be picking up and installing my first kit this weekend from a local here in town.
I'll be learning all sorts of new curse words as I mount a 66cc Grubee Starfire onto my trusty Trek 4100 mountain bike. I'll post pics of the build when it's done, of course. I was a bit nervous about attempting this, but I'll be getting help from my much more mechanically inclined father on this one, which has eased my concern a bit. The thought of commuting 30 miles to work without having to take a bus is making me a bit giddy - I hope this all works out.
My wife of course thinks I'm crazy, which makes this project even more fun. If all goes well, I'll build another next month for my 15 year old son so we can go on rides together (the wife has an 36V Aowa ebike, just need to fix the flat tire which is on my list for the weekend as well).
Great forum, I've already learned quite a bit!
