    I lived in Dallas for a total of about 6 years. I wonder how it is for motorized bicycling.

    Here are important questions to consider when building or buying for yourself or others:

    1) What is the predominant riding terrain? (Level ground, hills, asphalt or dirt etc...)

    2) What type of physique does the primary rider have? (Large, small, short, tall or health issues etc...)

    3) What will the rider's local laws allow and require them to have? (Lookup and personally read these laws.)

    4) What kind of bike is being motorized? (Mountain, road, whizzer or recumbent etc...)

    5) What is the bike to be used for? (Shows, long trips, around town, off road or racing etc...)

    6) How much of a budget is to be used for the build or buy? (All at the start or as you can afford projects etc...)

    Seek the answers to these questions in order to get the most out of the bike you're building or buying. We're here to help with any questions you may have. The purpose of the questions to consider is not to overwhelm or confuse you. Rather help you focus in on what will work best for you and help you develop a building or buying philosophy. This site has lots of people who can help you but the only way they can is by asking questions. Any one of the questions to consider somebody here can help you with.

    A fool never learns from their mistakes.

    A smart person learns from their mistakes.

    A wise person learns from the mistakes of others.

    Good luck with your build or buy.

    Welcome! If you like tinker or your a project kinda guy then a chain kit might be for you. If your looking to just ride and enjoy yourself I would look into a friction drive kit. They are much more reliable! Enjoy!
