The concept of motorized bikes is not very new, but it is gaining a lot of popularity with time. With the rise in the prices of fuel, the concept of motorized bikes seems to be excellent. These bikes are the future of transportation and a way of calling attention to “green living”. They will not only reduce the cost of transport but will also save a lot of money in the long run. Instead of getting your car out for visiting a store near you, you can use motorized bikes and travel without thinking about spending money on fuel.
Another interesting thing is that you can easily turn your normal bicycle into a motorized bike by adding a motor to it. It is not very hard to convert the bicycle all you need to do is get an motor and some tools. An engine will cost you a few dollars and all you need to do is to fix it using common tools. However, you need to consider a few things before you buy motorized bikes or convert your bicycle into one.
The first thing that you need to ask yourself is how much you are going to use the motorized bikes. Do you want to ride it as a hobby or you want to ride it to work? What is the terrain of the area you live in? Is it flat or hilly? You need to ask yourself these questions before you decide as it will affect your choice. Another thing that you will have to decide is what type of motor you want. There are options chain drives, belt drives and shaft drives. Each of these has its positives and negatives.
