Default Re: Are we "Bikesters"?

To me Moped implies much more of an engine slanted build rather than a bicycle. Mopeds are more of a pedal started small motorcycle in my mind. The pedals are not meant to really propel you past starting. On our bikes, you can still pedal it as a bicycle with only a small drag penalty. Try removing the engine from a moped and riding it a few miles....
Motorbike comes closer, but people automatically assume motorcycle when they hear that.
I think of mine as a bicycle with some really good add on's.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
