Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Monday, May 01, 2006

Something like km 1550

Put the finishing moves on the summer lightweight. It is a early 90's MTB from the Toyo factory. It rides nicely, especially now that it is a well tuned bike. Summer bike is also substantially lighter than the SC1800. Summer bike probably weighs something like 28lbs, whereas the SC1800 comes in at 48lbs (with the lock and all).

No doubt the summer bike instils a desire for riding. The feel of an efficient machine converting energy to forward movement is gratifying.
