    It comes down to personal preference,

    2-stroke or 4-stroke.
    Single speed drive or multi gear system.
    Chain drive or friction drive.
    Front mounted engine or centre mounted engine or rear mounted engine.
    Pull start or pedal start or a combination of both.
    Manual clutch or centrifugal clutch or combination of both.
    Standard engine or an engine with aftermarket parts attached.

    2 stroke
    Chain drive
    Center mount
    Pedal or pull doesn't matter. Preferably pedal though or even combination
    Manual clutch
    Either engine

    That narrows down your criteria.
    Making a decision should be easy. You just have to decide which aftermarket parts you want and why you want them.

    Mounting the standard rear sprocket is almost impossible...the way the spokes are laid out in the 29" rim.....Also, if the bike frame is dished inward on the bottom left side, the motor chain will NOT clear the frame...I stopped doing these 29's because of these problems....

    Though no of those problems are encountered if using a SickBikeParts shift kit.
