    I've ordered my motor and in looking for a bike a 26 seems a little to tall not hardly any clearence and a 24 feels like I'm on a kids bike. Any suggestions which way I should go? So far all Ive found is a Sch.-Jaguar & a Huf. Santa Fe

    fits me very nicely :D

    I still like my Skyliner, with the seat set as low as possible.

    Thanks for the prompt replys . Was there amy problems mounting the engine to the Jaguar? I'm getting a Dax engine!

    no problem mounting
    you will either have to drill for front mount or try another way
    search front mounts here or look on e-bay for frame saver mount
    good luck :D

    The way that bicycles are sized is not the wheel size, but the frame size--specifically: the seat tube height, measured from the bottom bracket center to a point level with where the top tube leaves the head tube.

    I'm 6'2" and I like a frame about 23"-24", or around 60cm.
