1- will I be able to go up hills? MINE takes modest hills
2- whats the fastest these things go? I don't have the cahones to go faster than 20 mph
3- why are pedals still on the bikes? absolutel! needed to turn engine over to start!
4- whats the easiest engine to "cannibalize" ?Don't! buy it new, ready t go! Less fussing
5- do people use gears (from a mountain bike or something)? I have gears on my Schwing Phantom. Once it's going I can gearup and go faster by helping the engine

Thanks! Im excited for this haha
