My name is Roger and I just moved to Groton, CT about a month ago. I have been wondering this site for a few days now just looking around and I think I'm going to have to get into this.
I found a place to live out here that is only 7 miles from work, but it is very hilly and the roads are narrow with quite a bit of traffic. The good thing is all of the roads I travel are only 35mph and I need something with better gas mileage than my Jeep Cherokee that I've built for off roading with 6.5" of lift and 33" mud tires. I began by looking at mopeds, but they are ugly and the motor bicycles you guys are building are great.
I currently have a Schwinn 26"/21spd Cimarron mountain bike, but I don't think I want to put a motor on it. After looking at all the pics around here I really like the cruiser style. I'll probably start building one in a month or two, but until then I'll keep reading and gathering information from this site.
