    Hi everybody, nice site. I don't have time right now to build a motorized bicycle but I bought one from Spooky Tooth and use it to ride to work every day and really enjoy the ride. I bought it a couple of months ago. I still haven't broken in the motor so I can get over 15mph. I live in Bisbee Arizona. How do you insert a picture here?

    How many miles do you have on it? You should be able to easily get it over 15 mph.... In fact, you don't want to baby it too much. What IS important is that you vary the throttle and engine speed.

    Don't run too much oil either...20:1 for the break in max, 24:1 after that.

    I had one bike I rode over 500 miles with the mix at 32:1 with no problems. I used synthetic oil, no smoke.

    It's just 1 mile each way. I just used 2 tanks so far.
    What am I doing wrong? I have to login 3 or 4 times then any thing I do I have to login again.

    i am looking and everything is fine on the forum. my brother in-laws does what you are doing but it is a setting and i am not sure which setting it is on his computer. i know the setting is designed to make it appear your computer is running faster when in actuality it is just putting up the latest picture and not updating. if someone knows how to turn that off let him no. as i said it is not the forum

    Hola mi amigo, alegra que podria unirse a nosotros :D I have not learned to post pic's myself, look at Pictures and videos, there is a post on how to do it. And when you figure it out maybe you could help me rotfl.

    One thing I have noticed if you take to long to make a post or something you have to log in again, that's the only problem I have ever had.

    I'm glad to see you here and I hope you will enjoy this forum better. Alot more action. (^)

    I was using Firefox. Today I am using IE. I haven't seen the problem yet today. Maybe Firefox was having problems with this site.
