    2 strokes are a headache but run great once you make everything right.
    I do love the quiet of electric bikes though. their lack of range is a killer though.

    Do you think 4 stoke or 2 stoke is easier to maintain for a beginner with not much installing skills

    4 stroke is much easier to maintain but I prefer 2 strokes because they have twice the power for the same size and there are many ways to modify them for better power.

    Welcome Bikes4ever!
    I have both the e-bike and a 2stroke gas bike. First time for either of them.
    The e-bike is a charge, ride, forget bike . Just adjust the breaks once in a month or so. That is all I have done in the 8 months that I have had the e-bike( GenZe 101 sport).
    The gas bike is a high mantinance bike!
    The break in part is the worst. Always have to retighten nuts and bolts.
    But it is a lot of fun to ride, and I like working on it too.
    Hope this helps, Both are fun in their own way .
    Keep looking up! Ken.

    Not always.
    I went to Daytona in Dec a few years ago and rented a motorbike.
    Temperatures dropped to 50f, same as back home. I rode the bike anyway...

    Canada, where a little bad weather doesn't spoil the picnic.

    I'm a former Michigander. We used to hang out in the woods year-round like that, too. Great, great times!

    If you're willing to dress right plus allow yourself to get a bit dirty you can be more than comfortable, happy as a clam even, even in the heart of winter. Mostly I'd rather not go three days without a shower. But I'm okay with it if it means I can be out if the open.

    These days I have less opportunity. But the bicycle almost makes up for it. And that's pretty much why I'm a year-round rider. The folks around me don't understand. But it's far more comfortable than they imagine.
