Default Re: Me and my bee

Still haven't gotten the chance to install it, but I have a question. I was going to put a caliper brake on the front wheel but correct me if I'm wrong but being direct drive the engine will act as a brake? Between the coaster brake and the engine I should have ample braking power, right? Stopping kills the engine I'm told and pedaling will start it again. I was also told I can pedal assist to help me up a hill. I may be able to get it together Tuesday. Anyone know how far I can go on a tank? I'm going to REI and getting a fuel canister to hold extra fuel just in case.
I have a need for slightly increased speed
