    Hello Group,
    I just bolted up a Staton kit to my new Schwinn Searcher, a Mitsubishi 43cc. I went for
    the friction drive just to see what it would do and I'm impressed how it moves my
    230lbs over the asphalt. This is all new to me and I guess a chain drive is in my
    future. I suppose what that will mean is a lesser tendency to pedal in order to help
    preserve the tire from roller wear. I would appreciate comments on just what a chain
    drive will do for me, and is it a painless change over from the friction drive? I believe
    the cost is abt $150 for the additional hardware. (NOT PAINLESS)
    I now believe I made a mistake on choosing a bike with an extra heavy frame, but as
    a newbie I'm entitled to a few dumb moves. I don't even see a need for the SEVEN
    gear speeds..... On my second ride I managed to lose the **** gas cap and have
    been looking all over for something that will work as I believe Statons price and
    shipping to be out of line. I found a cap that will work until I get lucky.
    cheers & beers one and all,
