    Hello All,

    Im 6"4' weight 300lbs and would like to get a motorized bike. Aside from finding a steel bike frame and 36 spoke wheels-mechanically will one of these Chinese made motors be able to push me up a small hill? or is this a small mans sport?

    Hi Rocky, you reminded me of my similar sized buddy to you riding my bike around. He was a sight and so was my rear tire! He loved it though.
    I keep the tire aired for my lightness and good ride.
    Yes, there are big guys on these.
    A shift kit is the way to go for hills. You WILL get up them, maybe not real fast.
    I have a transmission of sorts on my bike and I love it.
