Hi,

I am 6 ft. 2; weigh 220 lbs. and because of age, ride moutain bicycles at a slow pace.

I want a motor bike that will provide enough power for steep hills.

I would like to learn from the group what is the best power train to use; ie. chain; belt, etc.

I would like to know who makes the best gas motor to be used and what displacemrnt would be most satisfactory.

Also, I would appreciate knowing what bicycle manufacturer makes the best bike for this application.

I know this is asking a lot and some may be hesitant in making recommendations.

I thank all of you in advance regarding any help that you take time to offer.

Cheers,

Mac

Yup! do the home work. Awsome, Augie, gentile yet to the point. Mac, Tom, Augie and the moderaters have laid it out so that there is all the information you could want at your call and beckoning. Just learn the search functions and off you go. I'm sure you can ask the proper questions within the proper threads, Mac.
May the farce be with U.

Welcome Mac to MBc. You will find the answers you need and most everyone here eager to help from selection to install to maintenance. Move slow now so you can move fast later.

Hi Mac. Welcome to MBC. IMO the threads on hill climbing concentrate on Gebe too much. Don't neglect checking out Staton chain drive.

it sure is easy when a new member will clue us in ahead of time, no?

mac...'van's right, of course...this is why you have to do some research. people tend to go with the first "recommendation" they receive as gospel and that can lead to buyer's remorse later, and maybe we lose another potential riding buddy.
