    Hello I am a newbie and plan on jumping in with both feet. In the works is a skull & bones hbb and a Magari falcon gt. Hopefully by spring they both will be motorized and road worthy.

    Hey Bikers,

    New to the block. I have finally finished building my bike. Macargi GTS mens 26" with speed carb. I have about 15 miles on it. After correcting a few quirks its now idleing and my tach has only peaked at 5080 since it is still on the first tank. Just completed fabricating my small utility trailer to haul.

    Would a shifter kit work to gain bottom end?

    Hello 2Door,

    Thanks for the welcome. I have a Micargi GTS 26" with heavy spoked rear wheel. I'am running a 41 tooth with speed carb. It tached at 5080 with speed of 25 mph. I,am running the first tank so I,am not pushing it yet.

    Hello Kinglooie,

    I would go for a lower tooth rear gear first. I,am running a 41 and I'am 225. If you have hills you probably need a 39.
