I'm now setting up a 24" Cruiser for my 5'2" daughter using the BMP & a Robin 35cc w/ the 1" roller. Performance wise w/ the Mitsi clone on a 26" Micargi Cruiser: I'm 205 lbs. & it'll do 27 mph on level ground. The BMP is a quality USA made product. I have not had it in the rain to tell U anything abt slipping. Most guys do experience some. Good Luck.
Thank you for all the good info. Whizzerd, I am also looking at the US made BMP drive set up, it looks very well made.

One more question: how does your bike do on average size medium grade hills?
