Re: new from SD. NOT HAPPY.!
nubie, take it from me, black or silver doesn't matter unless you want silver. It's easy to paint your motor black. Doing it yourself looks better.
Waiting for a motor isn't necessary though because the one you're waiting for isn't any better then the ones BGF sells on eBay, and they're in stock. Also look at LEB motors.
The bicycle is a different story. You almost always have to wait for one if you're picky. I just ordered a new bicycle from a local bike shop, and they told me up front it will be 6 weeks before they can get it.
If any bike will do walk into wally world and pick one.
