Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

Hey, this is a tip I thought I might pass on. the bolt in the picture might look familiar, particularly to drummers. It came off the rack tom of someone's drum kit. I discovered that these lug bolts fit right into the threads of the china-girl type motors, and I use them on the down tube(FRONT) motor mount of both my gas bikes. the stock studs are infamously weak and prone to breakage. if you are a drummer, you might have a ton of these, and if you're not, the local music store probably sells them. They are sold in a variety of lengths. I have found they work well on the front mount(the one most likely to have it's stud lengths modified) all you need is a drum key to adjust or remove. Not exactly earth shattering, but it helped solve my problems for good.
