    do the engines offer much resistance when pedalling with the engine off? or is it a deal where you only pedal to start the engine and then not again.

  2. with the clutch in it's just like riding your bike as normal, just with an extra 25 pounds on the bike.

    And a big chain that has to get pulled around...
  4. yeah, so to answer the question, a little resistance.

    just wondering if it was alot. i mean so much so that a person would not be able to ride without it running.

    when the clutch is fully dis-engaged, i'm able to spin my rear wheel & it'll go around at least once before stopping.

    on my 5-speed i have to use 3rd gear because i'm dragging that chain around the little drive-sprocket, but i have my clutch adjusted nicely & i have no problems peddling at all, 'cept for being almost 50 years old, that is :?
