    Hi,everyone. This is my first post,I haven't done a build yet,but I'm completely stoked. My motor kit comes next week ,have'nt decided on a bike yet ,mountain or beach cruiser. Any preferance? Not that many mountains here in S.Florida, so first one will probably be a cruiser.

    Welcome to the forum! The general concensus at most forums is to stay away from coaster brake equipped bikes. With the speeds easily obtained with an MB, they tend to overheat the coaster hub and cook the grease inside them. Keep that in mind if you are going to go the way of the cruiser.
    Make sure it has calipers.

    Mostly, cruisers look better and mountain bikes are more comfortable.
