Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Saturday, February 25, 2006

km 490.48

Sled dogging the rig this morning. Centre of gravity is a little high as BB clearance is ample, forcing slow maneuvers though corners to prevent sideways sliding. Weight distribution with stock stem & seat-pillar keeps firm traction on the rear wheel at the expense of making the front wheel 'bite'. All in all puts an onus on the rider to keep the rubber side down on the icy stuff.

The white turtle light repair seems to be holding up. The only tip to be suggested is to use saliva as electro-conductive gel. After that, it all seems to be about the positioning of the button over the circuit board.

Again, yea verily am impressed with the 20 weight SAE oil on the chain. It seems more tenacious than the Prolink. Does not suspend excessive amounts of grit. Chain sounds queit and feels smooth. Costs less. Not just for sewing machines anymore!
