To answer your question yes, you can mount an engine to it because I already have. you just need a universal mount for the front of the engine and extended bolts for the back. mounting the gas tank will be tricky due to the width of the frame but all you need is 2 u bolts wider than the frame and 4 small hose clamps to hols the bols to the gas tank. thats how I did it.

I've read Q and As Here and I'm Picking Up My Bike Hopefully by The end Of This Week Or Middle of Next Week And They Say It Doesn't Come With a Manual If You Pick it Up Not Assembled . Is This True ?

The assembly instructions are in the package attached to the bike, however the store will assemble the bike,just try to let them know before it ships so they will know to put the bike together for you before you get there at the store ok? Most of the time they will assemble the bike for when you arrive if they have personel available. Takes about 20/45min.

Yes it comes with instructions but its all
Pretty easy, a phillips screwdriver, an
Alanwrench, 5/8 &11/16 wrenches, and
a pair of pliers. It took me about 15minutes
to completely put together. It took more time to
open the box.

Standard tires for adult bikes are mostly 26" diameter. This bike has 29" diameter. The larger tire takes more energy to turn but once you get moving can maintain higher speed. The bike as a whole is taller also.

crankset replacement?

I'd like to swap out the existing crank with one w/ a smaller chainring and 175mm arms. Will the existing bottom bracket work with different cranksets? if not, what size/thread bottom bracket would be required?

This is your standard bottom bracket, not a new wave model. Was thinking about putting my mountain bike, race face crankset on it. Would have to use the splined bottom bracket also.

The crank is welded to the front sprocket, so if you want to change the cranks you'll also need to replace the front sprocket / chain ring. The front sprocket is much smaller than any I've ever seen on a single speed bike, so you may have a hard time finding a replacement. Bottom line: might be do-able but finding replacement parts may be difficult.

yep. It depends on the style of mount but there is predrilled mounting holes on the back for a rack or child seat.....but a trailer is the way to go, especially if you have to load and unload the child by yourself.

Center of bottom bracket to top of seat post is 18 inches. There are a couple of other dimensions to consider here, too, though--the bottom bracket height is 12" from the ground (pretty high) and the standover height of the frame is about 33" (also pretty high).

At the same time, to me, the handlebars aren't comfortable unless they're tilted up at a fairly radical angle--the front feels cramped otherwise. Granted, I'm used to riding BMX and mountain bikes and am used to a more stretched-out riding position.

The best bet--try to get a test ride.

Coasters have different pressure when you apply the brake so it will not lock.

Coaster Brakes are really just the official name of pedal aka Back Pedal Brakes.

By

answer 3
I've contacted the company for more information on this, but from what I can tell so far, the coaster breaks are more like a slow break to stop rather than lock up the tires right away. so I press back on the break and it slowly breaks the wheels without locking them up until the bike slows way down. Once the bike is stopped the wheel is locked up and when I press forward on the pedal it unlocks the wheel

By saddle bag, if your talking about conventional under seat bags, yes. If your talking about the old fashioned dual strap type where the straps run though loops on the back of the seat designed for those straps, NO. The stock seat does not have those loops. The bike will also accept many designs of tail racks and back pannier type bags.
