Hello, I've ordered this motor a year ago and just now have the time and means to actually install it. I was going to put it on my old '80s Speialized Rockhopper. As I was attempting to install it, I realized that the pedals were rendered useless because of the wide motor. The main reason I'm going with a motorized bicycle instead of buying a moped is because I don't want to be fully dependent on gas in case I run out and have more distance to cover. I also want to be able to just pedal it through states that don't consider it legal to use a motor on a bike. Once I get it all set and running great, I'm contemplating riding up and down the east coast. My question is: what's a good reliable bicycle that can handle years of hardcore all season riding while having a wide enough crank to have the pedals be usable with this motor?
