    Hi there,

    I'am new to this forum and I need to post my first thread. Please help!... I am building my first motorised bike in 3 months. I want to know if the roller needs to be a special diameter for more power and quicker results. I'am going to use a old wipper snipper motor for my bike. Can you purchase a roller in store or will it be easyer to make one yourself. By the way do I need to make another accereator handle below my brakes or can I disconnect my back brakes for my accereator handle and use my front brakes only.:confused:
    Please Help!!!!!

    Best Regards Ben

    Bigger the roller say 1 1/2in you'll get more speed/less torque, smaller roller 1in you'll get more torque less speed.
