Default Re: Hello from Florida!

Hi from south Florida, I'm ready to convert my Specialized Sorrento mountain bike to a motorized bike. I want as much power as possible and still have the bike be safe and stable. The prospect of a wheel failure at 35 mph is not a pretty picture! I would welcome any advice as to size, brand of kit, and weather or not my bike is a good choice for the conversion.Also,not to sound like a compleate coward, I'm not sure I would want to build it myself or have a shop do it.If I had it done at a bike shop, what would a reasonable amount of shop time be for them to build it. I don't want them to charge me $400.00 labor, if it should be compleated in 2 to three hours. Thanks for any input

Terry from Florida
