Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Quite a sled dog, this SC1800. Took it for a 30 minute boot thru cold, windy & snowy conditions last night. It handles sure as can be, except in the corners where the relatively high centre of gravity make it necessary go slower. Had to get in the granny gear two times (28x28 moving up grades and into the wind) yet had to trouble with traction or torque. Considering putting hockey tape on brake lever blades to reduce conduction cooling of digits. All in all, it would be totally comfortable if my hands weren't cold.

Looking forward to posting pictures of this nasty piece of work in the next month. In the meantime here is a pic waking up at a very nice local coffee shop.
