    Hi there!

    Don't feel bad, I'm trying to figure out the lingo myself.
    I just came back after an extended vacation and they went and changed the names of everything! :confused:

    Yea I feel ya man. Me I personally don't know much bout these bikes. Got a used lemon in the dead of winter here. I've learned what I know from having to replace everything on it. I think I've gotten the hang of it finally. Hasn't been easy tho I tell ya.

    Well it's nothing special to look at but I've put alot of time,work,and dedication into it. It's an Ironman 21 Speed Mountain Bike. I have a basic chinese 66/80cc 2 stroke/cycle engine on it. CDI and magneto is stock but brand new. I just put on a Speed Carb on it,3 prong spark plug,spring loaded tensioner,thick heavy duty chain. I warped my cheap aluminum back rim so I'm gettin a steel one with hopefully thicker spokes. I have plans for fenders,a smaller sprocket or the fancy hub adaptor piece I can't get my eyes off of and a double kickstand to start.

    Welcome to the forum. I have only visited Maine once. I gotta go back one day.

    It's a great place to ride in the summer as long as you're not in the city.
