Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Tuesday, March 07, 2006

km 670.70

No observations to report today. The gear adjustment performed in the park seems to be adequate.

Thoughts on this as a regular commuter...a budget choice. Cannot compare to the efficiency of road racing or hybrid wheel size, makes up for it in durability and comfort. Ever so good exercise to push a 48lb bike up a mound whilst slightly overgeared. Results in fitness are most noticable when riding the same terrain on a much lighter bicycle.

Recently noticed the 'Made in Canada' sticker on the chainstay. It is heartwarming to purchase locally grown products, because of the smaller footprint it leaves on our planet.

Mentioned it is $99?
