Riding Position

On normal mountain and road bikes your weight distributes between three points: hands, feet, and seat.  When you add a motor to propel the bicycle, weight immediately shifts back to the seat.  Before trying any type of front suspension, try a comfortable saddle.  This upright seated position has the benefit of good posture and a stance ready to accept whatever obstacles appear in the road.
If beach cruiser moon bars aren’t your thing, try a Long-Horn handlebar.  With a less dramatic bend, the hand positiong can be more comfortable on your wrists.
