    Of course I am biased, but I really like my schwinn ranger. It is very sturdy, came with a grip shift, and runs like a horse with this shift kit. Here are some pics...

    Steel frame, Front suspension with disc brake and quality tyres.

    Try to find a steel frame with "standard" tube sizes.

    Then it needs decent gears, Its quite a mission to get the right bike.

    You don't need standard size tubes, just a standard size seat post. Some of the manufacturers make their motors with a wide front mount for goofy tubes, it works great.
