just got my bike motor on aand already ruined my rear rim gotta get that HD one. Plus upgraded my chain tensioner to a true roller bearing assembly, and drilled out to accept 3/8 bolt hard ware. Chinese mild metal just pissed me off.
darn tough but it the very begining of a build that the major problems come out cause in a way its not put together completly just temorarily tell something fails and needs to be beefed up i use a skateboard wheel for my tensioner it works great and instad of the standard pully holder that weakly bolts on one bar i took a flat steel bar driiled a few holes to the fram put c blots on it to hold in place now for the hard part drilled a holes side by side for about 1 1/2 inches long then pain stakingly used a file to smooth a slide hamber so i could adjust tensoin the combo of flat bar mount and skateboard wheel for a tnesioner has made a real improvement to reliability i only have derailments when i forget to maintain my bike whitch never happens
alaskan i thought about buying a cheap walmart skate board so i would have four wheels to use with bearings i do wanna see a pic of that also. My only thought on it was the chain walking off with it having no side rails to keep it in check. Fulltimer i'm in Middleburg if you know where it is. St augustine is the only beach i go to since i was 6 yrs old 31 now. We were just at anastasia state park 3 weeks ago for a concert at the ampitheather. You know of any place around us to get a 26x2.125 HD rim for a fair price. Plus what part of St auggie you in
There is a good bike shop out on the island. At least I heard it was good. I ordered rims from Pirate Bikes. I'm located by "The Shores" on US-1. If you want I can give the bike shop a call and save you a long distance call.

Sorry, I don't send text messages. Too old to mess with that! LOL None is stock but he found 4 sets in Indiana. He said to figure $125.00 for the pair with coaster brake and shipping to his business. That is: Island Bicycle 211 Anastasia Blvd. Saint Augustine: 904-824-4010
