Default Re: New guy, what to get?

When I first put my bike was roughly 1000 bucks including the bike.

It's friction drive- you could get a decent bike, a thatsdax motor and friction drive and be well under a grand. I like the friction drive because it's so simple. Sure, it has some disadvantages-the chief one is that you can't ride when it's wet out.

Try changing a flat tire on a wally world bike with a frame mounted engine......I can change a flat on my bike in less then 5 minutes. I guess that comes from my mountain biking days- back then I could change out a tube and be back riding in less then 90 seconds :-)
If some's good...more is better and too much ain't enough.
