Wink Re: Custom Frame For Thumper Motor

Was gonna go with 24" wheels on my current race bike but I felt like it may be like cheating

For this what would the experienced recommend for the rear sprocket?


Hey MB, I've been running a 52T on mine and it's been perfect with my CVT and j-shaft set-up......front end comes up reeeal ez

I may run a 56T at Grange, it will be like riding a unicycle
