Yeah, I could buy a throw away bike from wal mart, but the problem still exists. The wheel and spokes weren't designed for a motorized chain drive system. The spokes will still break.
I'm not willing to spend $50 a month on a new wheel to keep rolling.
And Redb66, it seems that you actually don't have to be a dealer to buy. I was able to create an account and have gone all the way to the portion where you give your CC number. I think it just asks for a company name if you own a bike shop or bike company. The fields are italicized which indicates to me that the fields are optional. In fact, when you get to the CC info page, it indicates at the bottom that the italicized fields are optional.
