    Good Morning all!

    Well I am looking to invest my time into building a friction drive setup and trying to make a decision on a good solid bike.

    I ran across a Mongoose Paver 700c for a good deal and was curious if anyone has paired it with a friction drive yet?

    I haven't purchased the bike yet, but have the chance to pending the response here.

    I searched for the bike and didn't uncover much about it on the boards.

    Thanks everyone and I hope that there is some good news about the bikes build quality.:cool:

    Sorry, no experience with that particular bike but I have tried a FD on a 700c x 38 Dback commuter bike and would say the the results were very satisfactory with that size wheels.
    Low rolling resistance and low tire heat from the spindle as well.

    Thanks for the response Happy Valley,

    I actually came across a Trek Navigator 200 for a really great deal and picked it up. I have started started saving for my friction drive kit and motor. I can't wait to get it running!
