Re: New Build... Need ideas
I agree with SB the HF motors are the best bang for your 4 stroke buck, but you need to be a bit handy. A good solid US made canti frame is a great start, but you will quickly go over your budget building one up. Look for a bike with as much of what you need already on it. My first bike was a Walmart bike I got for $99 The Schwinn Landmark from walmart always seemed a decent deal for 139. front and rear brakes, multi-speed, I would def upgrade the wheels though.
