Re: Beginner Buying advice
Welcome to the forum, that question can be answered many ways. I like most of the members here that have built a few of these disassemble the engine before I ever run it. This will void the warranty but by doing this I've never needed a warranty. If you're going to use a cranbrook be careful of the brakes, the coaster brake leaves a lot to be desired. I always add a front brake of some type, a bmx side pull brake with a 96mm reach works on a cruiser bike.
