I’ve ridden a lot of mountain and road bikes, but my first motorized bike is a cruiser. I’m finding it very difficult to just pedal off with it. I changed the handlebars and it made a considerable difference. I’m actually able to get leverage on the pedals. But without gears, I have a tough time starting it. Not so much on flat ground, but on an incline, it seems impossible. I’m considering changing out the sprocket, but wonder if I’ll have trouble getting up to 8-10mph. With the current gear ratio, its hard to start off but helps support the engine when it needs an assist. Am I just spoiled by mountain bikes and road bikes? Or are cruisers inherently poor riding bikes?
