    You might have better luck dealing with Gasbike.com next time.

    Yea, I might have had better luck dealing with ANYONE else next time.
    Hopefully "next time" is a long way off.

    Do realize these parts kits have some very cheap parts. Like the crank and pedals. Mine are cheap and the bikes don't pedal nice at all but getting a good one is expensive relative to these kits. The pineapple bushing is crap compared to a CNC adapter but that will cost you $70-$100. You can buy a good crank set but again $100. On and on. I priced out a bike I would like to build just to see what the ball park numbers are and I hit $1000 fast. That's with a 4 stroke Chinese motor and a standard belt drive transmission.

    I have an unknown kit build, one from Gasbike and one from King's motors. All the parts are basically the same except the transmissions.

    Oh I know they are all basically the same cheap stuff. I figure Ill upgrade one thing at a time as needed. For now just upgrading from 2 stroke to 4 was huge for me. AND got that nice big gas tank too. I think I did ok considering I am NOT a mechanic.

    I've played with enough 2 strokes, they are lighter and you can get more power out of them but I like trauma free riding in my old age. LOl. Get on it and go. 4 stroke all the way.

    lol… yes. Trauma free riding. Love that. Better still is NOT dealing with trauma (and sweat) filled WALKING home while pushing some 85lbs of bike.

    So far so good. Looking at extended seat posts and possibly a cushier seat now. My seat is ok but this one looks amazing.
