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

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

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.
