Maple Leaf Test Rides

The continuing saga of test riding a Supercycle SC1800 (Canadian Tire product # 71-1556)

Wow what a nice day for a makes it fun again!

Also installed those new fenders and a luggage rack. Now I won't have to use that piece of plastic lock bracket and hear that annoying rattle sound. Now I get to hear the annoying rattle sound coming from the fender rods :)

So to review the kit - SC1800 ($99), Planet Bike ATB Freddy Fenders($21.50), Planet Bike XL Extra Guard Lock($16.50), MEC Mountain Rack($14), 2 Turtle lights($6.50), Filzer DB2L($11.50) and a MegaHorn ($30) total is $199 + tax = $229 CDN. That is about the cost of two months of transit passes. Quite an expensive experiment!
