    Nice bike indeed. I have a question about "cruiser lovers" Isn't it hard to peddle with a 1 speed especially when you're going up hill? I have a 12 speed and it's kinda hard for me to go up hill, I can't image a 1 speed. I'm assuming motorize cruisers mostly use the engine and not the peddle?

    With an 80cc (66) you can pretty much scale anything that a car can, just slows down a bit.

    The 48 you need to kinda help it on the really steep hills, or sometimes on dirt. But the 1-speed is more than sufficient. What I do is drive in a criss-cross pattern and the bike seems to take it better (trick I picked up from my Goped). Of course, a mirror helps for cars.

    Cruisers with a 21 gear would be ideal.

    There aren't any hills at the Beach around here unless you count the causeway bidges. It's pretty flat in Florida. Besides I upgraded my gears from 44/18 to 46/17! :)
