Default Re: New to this need help finidng right bike and motor

The right bike is one you like to ride.

I ride tall on a Giant Boulder. That sounds funny when I say it but I am sure they mean Boulder Colorado.

Some like to ride low.

High for me means my legs extend fully when I peddle and that is a good thing. Low means the legs do not extend fully.

Funny part here also is adults ride little BMX type bikes as if they had to borrow their little brothers bike.

Anyway. I'm sure you will know what you like when you see it.
There are ways to mount to most any bike but some of the tubes are way more oval than round and that can be a problem.
This Boulder I have has an oval tube where the idler attaches so it grips excellent.

There is how the back wheel comes off as well. Some say a mount with the u facing back is best but I like the U facing down so the wheel stays put and drops down to change a flat.
