Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Wednesday, May 03, 2006

km 1578.7

Wee beastie running OK. The same complaints about worn drivetrain and pedals, these are tolerable conditions.

Unfortunately for wee beastie, we are fussy (spoiled, perhaps?) here at Maple Leaf. And now the time is prime for riding and there is other rigs to ride. This puts the SC1800 in the shop so the summer bike goes out. SC1800 will still be ridden of course, but not at the same rate as in the winter.

Conclusions so far: SC1800 is a decent candidate for winter riding to save wear and tear on the bikes we love; Weak areas are bottom bracket, drivetrain and pedals; An excellent value at $99, ideal to replace rather than repair department store bikes; Will not put elan in the activity of cycling; The experiment continues......
