Re: Strengenthing my new cruiser
Sorry to bring back this old thread, but I have a point about frame strength.
These bikes were NEVER meant to have gas engines on them lol They were not even built with any inking of thought that people would do this.
I looked at a Delmar last night and the rear wheel holder looks so thin and brittle... I believe dad and I are going with the Ocean Pacific.... It has a beefier rear wheel holder and thicker forks.
So whatever the geometry is, it is good for the purpose intended as a cruiser pedlaing along the sidewalk at 5 MPH rather than 22 MPH with a vibrating motor on it.
I told my dad he should take it easy on it, because after all, it's still just a little bicycle.
