Re: Ideal combination?
I would use a steel multispeed bike,side pull caliper brakes,front suspention only.
Even if you don't use all of the multi gears you wont have to worry about a coaster brake hub wheel exploding or breaking on you, and if will be easier to adjust your engine side chain since you will have a derailer on the other side.
I had a coaster brake wheel and the hub exploded the first week of low speed riding,so i replaced it with a mountain bike wheel even tho i have a single speed.
Now that i received tickets for having a engine on my bike and now i have no engine i wished i bought a multispeed bike.
