Default Re: New Need Lots of help

I have a 2011 Skyhawk 66. It's not bad, but took me a bit to tune with the carb but it scoots at about 32mph. Granted, not at the moment since the carb is FUBAR. lol

Here is the thing with bike frames, Cruisers are the easier to install as there is less factory crap to have to deal with working around. You have to bore out the sprocket for the engine, because the coaster brake hub is larger than a standard bike wheel, but that's easy enough with a dremel and some time. Coaster brake WILL get you hurt once you start pushing these things. Or you'll munch a bearing...ask me how I know. :rolleyes:

Mountain bikes are "best" IMHO since they already have brakes and you can spin the cranks to be able to start easier. But they DO have all the excess cabling of derailleurs and brakes.
2 WHEELS: '11 Huffy Good Vibrations, '11 Skyhawk GT5, 44t, CNSV2, NGK BPR7HIX, Bosch wire, shutupexhaust, 26x1.75kevlar tires, Tektro C230's, new stupid Bell chain
