    I currently have a mountain bike that i hope to slap an engine on and i have a couple of questions. What kinds of bikes have the most speed when motorized? and What kind of engines have the most kick to it? I have been looking at these ebay bike kits, are they any good? i've been looking at the photo gallery and it seems like some engisne kits have had a few upgrades, can someone show me a good bike website?

    all I can suggest is to read all you can on this site
    lots of good info here and people have done a lot of different styles of bikes

    Observations without any science to back me up-

    26" tires are faster than 24", road tires seem to have an edge on knobbies.

    Being in 7th gear is faster than my cruiser's 1 speed.

    Proper break-in procedure, for the first 150 miles, has more to do with performance than nearly anything else.
