I am TOTALLY open to suggestions for kits, motors, and anything else you guys know about dealing with this particular bike.
Thanks Kindly!

First off, welcome to the forum.

Next, look in the Motorized Mountain Bikes section. There are quite a few 29's that guys here have built. I'm sure they can answer your questions.
