Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

If it's the "china doll" engine, you could customize a carb for that elevation, and bring a spare for everything lower. Since it's so easy to swap carbs on the china kit engines, that is probably the best solution.

With this in mind, I think that a question we should ask a 'newbie' is "what elevation do you live?" when they post that 'won't start' thread.
