I want to construct a minibike from a bicycle and a chainsaw engine. I'm not
sure on the way ratios work and why smaller wheels work better. By chance. . .
this contraption should work shouldn't it.
P.S. A lot of minibikes have 3 hp engines and go about 30 mph. . . so I figure
a chainsaw of at least 2-2.5 hp would be sufficient for a 130 lb. person
