    My huffy cranbrook broke into two bought a trek classic to replace it.. Why every day motors on a trek classic mines as snug a possible

    Sorry about the broken Cranny frame. I have heard of frequent failures with the frames that have welded-on cargo racks. like the Panama Jack, but not so many with the Cranbrook. The Trek will be bullet proof.
     
  5. I have a road master... yes a road master, and not one problem. I have a 7G 4 stoke mounted on it regularly haul about 20-25lbs on the rear rack it has with a crate attached to it. Top speed 30mph 22-18 on bigger hills. Everyone was like "ohhh no you're gonna be sorry it's gonna take a sh*t on you... Solid as ever and my terrain is rocky full of pot holes and almost no side walks just gravel and dirt paths. I'd recommend it to anyone. Since I've taken her thru some shitty terrain I know what quality it is.
    Sorry about you're frame bro that's always a pain in the ass, looks like it worked out better in the end tho! Cheers

    the cranbroke made in the neighborhood of 3k i think dd... the motor i have used the same big end till last week when i changed out the bottom end for a newer one and yeah already i could tell the trek is lighter faster and since i spent a extra day on just drivetrain much more stable at wot.... love is in the air!

    heres some of my latest recomendations: new style rear mount....
    ive been using a goped throttle lever lately... better response quicker at adjusting than a twistie...
    my beat down head cracked fins and all pounded this crap with a hammer to unstick the piston when it ate a tiny piece of wire... stupid my part. but is still running
