Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Up to KM 19.474

So far so good, the roads are clear and dry this morning. There was a slight noise coming from the rear wheel as it is a little bit out of true and rubbing on the brake pad.

Funny to think of other things I could have gotten for $99....a full tank of gas for a cargo van; one tire for a car; an OK pair of shoes; 5 CD's of music; several cases of beer; an Ulitmate BRS-50 repair stand; more than half of a MEC Zik cycling jacket (www.mec.ca).

So far I've saved four $2 trips that I would have taken by transit. Another 45 trips and I'll be breaking even!
