Default Re: Help finding a nice commuter setup, please!

Tom, You couldn't have explained it any better in my opinion. Myself I love the 2 strokes, but they are definitly for the tinkerer! I have four of them and it keeps me busy keeping them all road worthy. I usually find that after any ride of any length there is something that needs adjusted or tightened. So far though I have never broke down. It's just that some run a little smoother than others.
Like Tom says though 45 m.p.h. is probably out of the question, (Who wants to go that fast on a cheap bicycle anyway?) Most of mine go between 25 & 30 with the 44 tooth sprockets.
Have fun with whatever you build, but remember this habit is Very Addicting!
