Ol' Pete said:Me no like, too much weight on the front end=slow steering and the noise/exhaust in the face. How is that livable? :?
Drilling a hole in the front forks? YIKES!
I like the bike but the seat post does seem a bit long.
wes said::???: hmmm. i'm getting the distinct feeling that many posters here don't actually ride bicycles for excercise and wish their bikes to be a type of motorcycle. the seatpost extension is anatomically correct for my leg length and cleated shoe for proper and efficient cycling. having competed for years in events and spent thousands of hours in the saddle on NONmotorized bicycles, a motorized bike is just to get me home faster after working a 12h shift 18 miles from home. if the seat is very low, i could not assist properly. the 25cc zenoah with the muffler you see is so quiet it is no bother at all and a 50:1 synthetic oil mix you can only smell in a enclosed space and cannot even see! all these 2stroke chinese engines are extremely polluting, and that is not my opinion, that is a fact! just watch the blue smoke pour!! i bought one and felt too guilty to run it. the bike handles better with wt. in the front. ever notice how touring cyclist are loaded heavier in the front?? having a light front end makes the steering unstable. look closer; there is no holes in the fork, are you kidding?? it's only clamps. the engine mounts are mounted to the fork blades with a very small allen bolt and the quck release mech. any other comments will be pm'd. w.
