    hey im new to the whole motored bike thing and would love any advice and comments you have. i live in Key West FL. so i have no hills at all. and am just looking for somthing in the 35+ mph range to keep up with traffic on my way in to town. any suggestions i know i want the motor to be mounted in the middle of the frame not in the back.

    Welcome aboard.

    I'd say that 35+ is actually too fast. Dangerous. But there are folks who apparently go that fast regularly, so maybe I"m all wet. Just a head's up on that.

    You'll have fun. Motor assisted bicycles are a blast.

    close to flying

    well you have no hills
    so with proper gearing
    you should be able to get close to desired speed with many offered
    but to remember
    that's close to flying on a bicycle

    as we ride those things

    Check out "Wheels to Go" it is located in Marathon, in the Florida Keys, about 50 miles north of ya, Also some guy that works at Kmart with the wyland mural on it in Marathon makes them as well.
