Spoke strength? Not a worry, just throw the bolt-on sprocket away
Lighting? Tons of options. Want battery or magneto?
I'm getting a 2002 Diamondback Response w/ a RockShox 'Judy' front shock (hardtail) and Continental Contact street tires. I'm not sure what you meant by "throw the bolt-on sprocket away" (NOOB syndrome). There's probably a better way, huh? I'll do some studying in the Archives. As for the light, it sounds like the magneto is the way to go as long as I don't overdo it.
I noticed you are from Washington too. Is it true I might have to register it with the DMV and have a motorcycle license. I could use some pointers from someone like you who's already experienced our local situation.
