My name is Chad.
A few years ago I mounted an old weed wacker engine on a bike a friend gave me, and just the thought of a motor on a bicycle has intrigued me ever since.
Ive been lurking here for about a month now, trying to fill my head with the different problems and fixes associated with this adventure. You guys really know your stuff. The search box helps tremendously when trying to find a certain topic.
I just bought the Grubee Skyhawk GT5 and I'm attempting to mount it in my Schwinn Traverse 26" mountain bike. Ive only seen one thread posted with that bike, and that member said that it didn't fit. I fell in love with the bike when I first saw it, so I will do what I have to do to make it fit. Ill probably have to "take the axe to it" and modify my down tube like Norman did on his Mr. Frankenstein build #5.
I'm not really motivated by the price, or how cheap I can build it; I just want a motorized bicycle thats different from the rest.
