Just ask yourself the same thing I ask all my customers.
1. What is your stature (weight and inseam)?
2. What is your typical daily trip distance each way?
3. What is the typical terrain?
4. What is your budget?
If your budget is under $500 counting a good bike or your stature is like 5'2" and 150 pounds you have no choice but to go 2-stroke.
If it's over $500 I like the 49cc HS with 4G tranny on a steel bike like this 29" Macargi Fatal Love or the 26" Pantera.
Under $600 including the bike.
Pull start, automatic clutch, and regular gas. They have far fewer problems than the 2-strokes, legal in most states, and they do 30+ MPH.
