Default Re: Considering getting a bicycle motor?

Seems to me Specialized frames are pretty open for the most part, but if you have rear suspension you'll need an SBP or Dax shift kit to run an inframe mount. Rear or rack mount would probably be ok on a suspended bike? (help me here guys!) DISCLAIMER: I'm sorta new at this but have been doing extensive research on the subject. Virtually all the old Specialized bikes I've seen are hard tails with maybe a suspension fork. As for engines, regradless of what others will tell you, a four stroke 49cc will have more torque (usable power) at low rpms than a 2 stroke of the same displacement.

Good Luck and above all....Enjoy!
