Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Sunday, March 05, 2006

km 631.81

Performed minor gear work this morning on the way in. The rattling from the maladjusted rear derailleur decreased the calorie in/calorie out effiency of the dirve. Fortunately, this was literally a one minute operation done in a park. The barrel adjuster was out about one rotation.

With the gears dialled in, the wee blue beastie is humming along. Nothing left to do except to ride, ride, ride.

The Toronto International Bicycle Show was a hurly burly of consumerism at it's down and dirtiest. There was also some interesting information being dispensed. A whole lotta fun.

Totally off the topic and completely unrelated to this blog, checked out the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game last night from the 3rd row! Facing Ottawa speedsters like Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza was tough enough, but when couple with a genetic freak like Zdeno Chara, the good guys had their work cut out for them. We lost, as is our custom, but some of the buds were showing heart by digging and grinding. Would love to see Jason Allison and Jeff O'Neill give it up in the style that Darcy Tucker and Tie Domi do. Stay tuned Tuesday March 7th at 1930H as the hometown heroes take on playoff contention with the Canadiens.
