Default Re: opinions from female riders on build

i may not be a girl, but i built myself a happy time bike and my GF wanted one too but shes only 5'4 and she couldent ride such a tall bike (24'' cruiser wit 26'' front fork and wheel)

so i had to think small
also she was afraid of my bike (because it looks so much like a motorbike my guess) and wanted one that wasnt as scary

so i put together one with a 32cc friction drive bmx bike
(soon to be high performance pocket bike powered friction drive)
seen here:

notice the springer front end and seat
its also pretty light and solid as a rock, much more relyable then a china girl.imho

keep it light
consider the riders height
centrifugal clutch
friction drive relyability
girl it up

i love riding with my gf
we want to take the motorbikes on the ferry to block island one day
