Thank you for the info!!
As far as it not being fast...I'm planning on purchasing a bike this weekend to ride to and from school anyway (6 miles...dang...) so speed isn't really an issue. I'd probably mainly use the motor to help me up hills or to use when I'm wore out and don't feel like pedaling.
EDIT: I've realized I'm gonna buy a bike and ride it awhile to save up money to motorize it. So I'll need a bike that's an easy ride either motorized or otherwise...so what bike would y'all suggest? I know one thing...I much prefer and old-school Y-shaped handle bar than either the flat or the cruiser style
