now the 49 cc motor does have a problem with pushing oil out of head because of one rod that is stripped or something, but i live in PA and around here are hills all over the place but when i got the bike and took it for a ride i could not even get up a hill had to stop and walk up the hill the motor stalled the moment it got a bit steep.
is this because of the motor being new and still needs to break in or was this all a huge waist of money i got it because of getting up those hills was getting pretty hard on my knees as i am not so young anymore i feel like i am 20 but my body keeps reminding me i am not. i see some guys just flying up the hill here with there bikes so it made me wonder.
