Default I have the engine, but what if I get the wrong bike?

OK, I bought the 66cc kit and it says standard "26 bike is what I need. First off I have no idea how bikes are measured but I can read labels, so crisis averted... I am having one issue that I cant seem to figure out. It seems as if a wheel with to many spoke will not work due to the 9 bolt pattern of the sprocket.. I'm a little worried about having to carry the engine kit into a bike shop to see what will and wont work. Are there any basic rules to follow when it comes to choosing a bike like about of spokes, wheel size, frame tube size and all that? I have yet to receive the kit I ordered and was planning to have the kit first then get a bike to match but I am quickly realizing that even getting the kit first may not spare me from buying a bicycle that wont work.. Any quick tips are appreciated, I'm sorry if my question is not specific enough but I think you guys catch my drift. Thank guys... - Tye
