Okay, I'm now getting the JACKSHAFT bug.

Something tells me if I bought a bicycle with gears instead of just a beach cruiser this might be the way to go.

Another thing to consider is that I'm not too concerned about the law in Puerto Rico as they seem to be pretty lax down there.

I'll have to make up my mind rather fast now if I'm going to purchase this and have it delivered before I leave on the 19th.

I guess one thing I'm wondering is how difficult this now becomes to now add a JackShaft kit and switch to a bike with gears.

I AM very mechanically inclined.
