    hey there!
    I'm just new here but I'm bicycling for quite some time already and I also want to make some innovations with my bike and I think anyone here could help me. Any suggestions are welcome and would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to MBc, Frank. Now that you have introduced yourself, be sure to read all you can, including the 'Stickies' at the top of every Forum. They contain a lot of information. For example, Sticky by Al.Fisherman has 20 or so links to "How To." threads, and important pages for you to follow. Sticky "Forum Rules and Infractions" by Anton is a 'must read' about how you are expected to Conduct yourself. However, read all of them, and be sure to use the search feature. Almost every question you might have has already been asked and answered someplace here. If you are still stumped with a certain problem, post your question in the proper Forum and I am sure you will get an answer. Good Luck to you.

    Here are important questions to consider when building for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain?
    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have?
    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have?
    (Lookup and personally read these laws.)
    4) What kind of bike is being motorized?
    5) What is the bike to be used for?
    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build?

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building. We're here to help with any questions you may have. Good luck with your build.
