Default Re: A beginner with plenty of questions. All input is appreciated.

I am not super knowlegable however I've heard only good things about the RAW engine kits. As far as a cheap bike, if you go with the cheaper bikes like the cranebrook, I've heard the main problem is with the cheap wheels, these would have to be upgraded. Another thing others have suggested about these bikes is the poor packing job of grease. So if you go the 100 dollar route you might end up spending more money anyways. I installed a front caliper brake, and am still using my rear coaster brake. She doesn't stop like a race car, but good enough. And as far as HT, I would like to know myself. Be careful, these things are alot of fun, while extremely addictive.
