    Yeah, I only pedal on take off. Now that my motors are broken in I like to hang around 24-28.

    You might as well accept the fact, that you're going to have to get handy, if you want to be serious about MB. They require maintenance even if they are assembled. On another subject, what the heck is a peddle?

    If you build it yourself, there will be blood, sweat and cursing but with the help of those on this forum, you will ride. More important, you will understand your machine, handy won't be an undefined term anymore. To put it another way, "there's growth in them spokes".

    Yeah. If you get one, you will learn. When I got my first motor, I didn't know squat, though I am pretty handy. After riding for a year, I know it well enough that taking the kit apart, building mounts and re installing it on the trike yesterday was no sweat. You will learn.
