Default Re: Road bike with friction drive?

The one downside that I have read to putting a motor on a road bike is the gross lack of suspension. Could make for quite a bumpy and jittery ride. Another possible consideration is the width of the road bike tire. Not a lot of meat, usually, for the roller to grab.
