What's the best bike for a 100cc engine? I'm looking for a pretty recent Hardtail. I'm 6'1 so I need something big I'm thinking about a used Ozark Trail Ridge or a GT Agressor. Used bikes are also fine for me. Budget of $300 for the bike

You have to make sure there is enough room inside the frame to fit the engine
This is what I think is the easiest bike to mount that on.

 
It will fit with some shoe horning and offsetting the carb but you are much better served with a steel frame.

Here is one on an aluminum frame. Works fine but I wouldn't recommend it especially off road.

That won't work. 26 in wheels are to small and I want to do light trail riding.
Would an engine fit on a 29er with 19 in frame?

It's actually pretty good on ground clearance. You could probably bolt a bigger wheel on the front.
Here's mine that is in progress (fingers crossed my gas tank shows up today)

@GW's Motorized Do you mean the hiland or Ozark? And why a bigger wheel?
I was talking about the hyper lol. And you were talking about having larger wheels. Also larger front wheels tend to give better offroad handling, atleast that's what the moto cross folks tell ya
