Re: Are pedals required?
unless you want to "scooter" it off the line and push it to start it, you need pedals.
my bikes will take off from a standstill without pedaling, but very slowly, and it really puts a hurt on the motor.
but starting it, you'd have to roll downhill or run alongside and jump on it to start it, unless you have a pull start.
also, in california at least, it must have pedals to be legal.
