Everyone will have different answers. If your broke usually,a Happy Time (Chineese 2 stroke frame mount) is your answer. If you got some money,people say that belt drive rack mount is smooth.There are also 4 stroke frame mount,rack mount chain drive,roller drives,weed wacker engined weld jobs,front wheel drive,Alaskavans wonder horse.. If you really got some money,you also can't go wrong with a Whizzer.
So read read read and guage your own opinion.
There's a wealth of knowlege here.

25 to 30 you may need to stay away from the Happy Time unless your willing to go with a small rear sprocket,do some pedalling and roll on a skinny 27 or 28 inch rim.

Get yourself a 2 stroke chainsaw motor or something because a chainsaw has more torque from what I've read so far cause Im also new to this. A chainsaw will get you up hills without as much pedaling, but a weed eater motor will also do the trick. Also I'd go with a frame mounted motor with a chain drive. Friction drives slip in the wet, burning up your tire.


Hope this helps a little bit.
