    Hello from Vegas.

    Whatz up everyone!
    My name is David and I just picked up my first bike again since I was 12 yrs old. I got a new red Nirve Switchblade. I never thought of owning another bicycle because I currently own 3 motorcycles (Ducati, Aprilia, and Yamaha). I was on a surf trip down in San Diego and pruchased a Electra Hawaii bike for my wife as a gift and saw the Nirve Switchblade. Man I fell in love with that beautiful looking bike and I just had to have it but the stores wanted too much $550. So, when I came back to Vegas I seached around town and found they were available at Sports Chalet for $429 and I picked one up.

    Right now I am trying to get used to going from a motorcyle to a bicycle. I'm thinking of adding a motor to the bike and looking at the frame of the Switchblade it looks like it is very possible. I saw a setup from Kings motor bikes and was very interested in getting one to put onto my new bike. Has anyone here have any experience or opinions with putting a motor of that type onto a bike?

    Another concern with putting the motor is that my bike uses a reverse brake system. Is it possible to put one of the Avid disk systems on my Nirve bike?

    Thanks,
    David

    Welcome to the forums

    Sadly you aren't able to put disc brakes on you bike The wheels on it, and the fork weren't made for discs. Sorry

    Welcome again!
