looking good Dave. Is your rear sprocket free-wheeling?

The drive sprocket for the motor is not free-wheeling. It is bolted up to the wheel using King's hat adapter...btw someone show me a pic of that adapter actually working?

That's really nice looking bike. Where did you get it?

Could you run a jack shaft to the peddle side, and then keep the rear disk?

I got it at Oro Valley Bicycles in Tucson. It was on clearance plus I got 15% off which made it almost 50% off.

Yes I could run a shifter kit but I cannot afford one. Maybe down the road at some other time.

This is one of the first Mountain Bike based bikes I've seen that I like the looks of, not that there's not others that look good, I'm just no experience.

Now I'll start looking in that direction.

I got another question please. Can you use the rear disk hub to mount the drive sprocket?

It depends on the sprocket, some have centers that are too big. Some all you need to do is re-drill new holes. There are adapters that will bolt right up to your wheel and sprocket. We have a few at Freedom and if I knew the hat adapter was not going to work I would have went that route.

My fuel savings........

Driving my truck back and forth to work I was spending about $30-35 a week. With my motorized bicycle I am spending just over $3.00 for a week and half of travel to and from work.

And that's probably not even considering the cost of insurance, and registration.....
