    Hi name is Ron, I'm in B.C. Canada.
    I am new to the form but not new to motorized bikes. I have built about 6 or so over a couple years. My current ride is a full suspension total custom purpose built frame. With all downhill equipment, triple crown forks, etc. dirt bike body.
    I run the final drive through the bicycle derailleur system, I have 9 gears to shift through.I drive it hard like a dirt bike, you don't pedal to start off, it will lift the front wheel off the ground.

    Here is a link to a pic of it.

    I have lots of knowledge from trial and error over the years so if you have any questions just ask. I have used all the hubs out there including a new Nuvinci N360, Which I blew apart in 3 days, there goes $400. O'well R and D sucks sometimes.

    Like I said just ask, if I can help I will.

    Chat latter

    Ron.

    Sorry don't have any more pics, and I took it apart tonight.
    I am going to try a different engine.
    I will post pics and let you know how it works when I get it done.

    Hey, how goes, Ron? Good to see another member in B.C.
    Whereabouts are you, if you don't mind my asking? I'm in south Vancouver.

    Not to bad, how r u?
    South Van Eh! I'm a little away from you. Chilliwack is my location.

    That's why I built the motto cross style bike, lots of excellent off road places and trails here.

    talk to you latter.
