Default Hello from Dorset, UK


I've just discovered this brilliant forum. I got rid of my last chinese engined bicycle about a year ago and miss it.
I can't say it was the most reliable of things but boy what fun!

I am now thinking of getting another kit and fancy one of the Golden Eagle kits from USA. Probably a Tanaka 32cc.

Really looking for some advice. I want to use it to commute to work, about 20 miles there (not legal in UK, I realise, but worst comes to worst I can peddle) and have some quite steep hills. If anyone has any comments or suggestions, I'm open to hear them.

I will say hello, and add that a 23cc friction drive was a bit questionable on the steeper hills for me.

That's a smaller engine I know. I am 200 lbs, and the hills were what I'd call "moderate".
