Default Re: New to motors - long time bicycler

Thanks for my welcome to the "void". A jackshaft shifter sounds great, but exceeds the current budget. Maybe down the road.

I will take Spad4me's advice on using my steel, diamond shaped frame for the first build. It will provide far more mounting options and I will not have to deal with a rear disc brake.

The steel diamond frame is currently just a frame with headset, so I need to start doing paint touch ups and pilfering parts from one of my other bikes. I will make it a single speed with a chain tensioner and cantilever brakes for simplicity.
