Re: Frame vs rear mount?
"I'd be afraid of damaging parts with a motor mounted in the center of the frame so close to my fast moving feet. I pedal my moped whenever I run out of gas. Sometimes that is more than a mile away from a gas station. I also pedal for starting and going up hills. Often I pedal to assist the motor going into strong winds. I can't have anything interfering with pedaling. "
I only pedel to start. 10-15 feet. My frame mount pedels almost as easy as regular bike. I have a 7 speed and I can make the effort on my part pretty easy to pedel.
