    Greetings motorized bicycle gods!

    I would like to get an engine kit, but there are so many to choose from. What would you recommend for an area with a lot of steep hills? Also, how much use can they take? I was thinking of using it to go to a town about 50 miles away on weekends.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I would get a 66cc inframe 2-stroke and you should try out the 44t sprocket that comes stock and if you need more to get up hills get a 50t sprocket, but your top speed will be less. Shiftkits are available to use your bikes gears with the engine.

    There are also 4-stroke engine options.

    They can takes lots of use if installed propperly and maintained and some riders have ridden many many miles away.

    The difference? One is black, and the other is "natural finish" or silver/grey.

    Also, scroll down and read the reviews, they are pretty fair assessment of the Chinese in frame engine kit in general.

    P.S., I would stick with 24:1 break in, and 40:1 afterwards with anything but the big buck synthetic oil. The 40:1 vs. 100:1 debate will rage on for as long as there are two stroke engines.

    Having said that, I will say this- remember that these china built two stroke engines are of 1940's design pretty much, and running 100: 1 may be a little sketchy for most of them.
