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

Cranbrooks, as well as most lower priced bikes, come with 14 guage spokes which can snap under the torque load of the motor. Getting the wheel upgraded to 12 guage will run you about 75 bucks. Any bike with a 70 degree included angle and at least a 12 and 1/2 inch seat post measuring up to 1 1/4 inches diameter is a perfect candidate for a Chinese 2 stroke. Grubee skyhawk GT5 is the best 2 stroke motor kit available. The bad news is motor bikes are illegal in Ohio.
