My first attemt at a double suspension bike was with the motor on the rear just because it was easier. I never got far enough to have it all together because when I got it mounted I took it down some trails and it was awfull. To top heavy and the center of gravity was all screwed up. Just did not feel right. I'm sure for the pavement it would have been just fine. But I was trying to build a down hill racer. I'm making plans for a new one but this one I will take my time and do it right.
