Hello. I'm a retired programmer from Arkansas. My wife will also retire in a couple of years. We are interested in motorized bicycles, but know next to nothing about them. I have begun to browse bikes and motors with google, but have not yet found what I think I need. We don't yet own bikes or motors so I will be initially just asking for help on what to buy, not necessarily in terms of brands, but in terms of features that would make a bike good for motorization. For example, on one site they said that I needed a specific number of spokes (32, 36?) and a front hand brake. I have no idea how geared bikes interface with motors. Do I want single speed? I have many more such questions. If there is already some place on this site that answers those questions, please point me there. Thanks.
