Re: just joined,
Nice frame and good ideas. I've got a Staton system on my bike. Certainly build your bike according to the terrain you'll predominantly be riding on. Where I live there's a lot of steep hills and long grades. So the need for my engine to drive multiple gears was a must. On my bike I manually shift the front three gears and the rear seven shift automatically. I use a crank drive system. The downhill gear I've reached speeds of 45 mph (72 kph).
