Full suspension with rear wheel chain drive

What is a good full suspension mountain type bike to put a 700 or 900 Watt rear wheel chain drive Cylcone motor on? Does it matter if the forks are aluminum with a rear wheel drive set up?

It shouldn't matter that your fork is aluminum if you go with a rear wheel kit. However, if you choose a rear wheel hub motor, it's still probably wise to use a torque arm. You can't be too careful. Good luck. Post photos of your bike once you install your kit.
