Default Re: Help a newb set up his first build!!

Glad to hear pedal assist is no prob for you! LoL Yer little cina motor is gonna need help !

8% grade at 6kft elevation is a serious task for any small engine.

IIRC, small engines lose 10% horsepower per 1,000ft above sea level.
...and you are NOT starting out with much!

Begin with 2hp. Take that to 6k ft above sea level, on a good day, you'll be smoking the dyno at 1hp!

I see GEARS in your future. :-)
