A total noob not only to this forum (well, duh) but to motorized bicycles as well. I'm a long time mountain biker and last year I ran into a guy who had this weirdest set up I have ever seen with a little 2 stroke jobby buzzing away. It definitely had folk stopping to chat and look things over which I did too. Then yesterday I saw the same dude zipping along and I seemed to have picked up the bug to have a go with one of these. . .so here I am as this forum looks like a great place to start with research and advice. Now trawl thru the threads. . .
