    :cool:I ordered a friction roller drive kit from today. They're also called Formula Bike Engines. I plan on putting it on my yellow bike (see picture gallery) or the Cranbrook Huffy.

    :confused:Question to the roller drive users: How long have you traveled in one trip with this type of drive? Do you have to stop to let the tire cool, or is that a non-issue?

    Never ride more than 100 feet without letting the tire cool. Just kidding, with a smooth tread tire (properly inflated), good knurled steel roller and correct roller tension, you'll get tired long before the bike will. I've run them 20 miles non-stop and when I did stop it was for coffee.
