Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Friday, January 27, 2006


Wow weighed in the beast at my buddy Bob's the other day...coming in at a heavyweight category of 48lb with the lock and all! What a mean training machine. It will be nice to unweigh the anchor and get on a lighter rig.

The handlebars came loose the other day, probably my fault for an improper torque check of the bar binder bolt. Also noticed tha brake levers aren't fully tight, presumably to save the lever blades in the event of a sketch.

Now have put in about 5 1/2 hours of 'flight' time on this bad boy. It has saved me approximately 20 trips or about $40 CDN I would have normally spent on transit.

Oooh the dropout alignment set is uspposed to arrive today..
