If you have a bike that you enjoy riding that's the best place to start. Buy the motor, buy the battery, buy a front gear, buy a couple of necessary tools, and get a control input... skip the Eggrider and buy a 500C, much better choice overall. The versatility is what makes the BaFang BBS series the best motor for any ebike, you can mount it and remove it anytime you like. I'd suggest the BBSHD over the BBS02 they are easier to maintain and/or repair if/when necessary.
