Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Thursday, May 25, 2006


Took the 2000 Rocky Mountain Turbo for final testing phase today.

Wow it go warp speed. Kinda like the Raleigh Professional from the days of yore, except much easier to push up mounds. The Shimano 105 kit is OK, except it never makes it from the 39 tooth to the 53 tooth on the upshift - lots of chatter and mis-shifting. The wheelset is super awesome value, relatively light, simple to service, not bad brake surface. The best part - paint job is totally 'bling'. The cherry red on white maple leaf stencil fade turns heads wherever it goes, would be big fun to ride on cycling vacations, if being happy to be Canadian is your thing. Sweet cherry-it!

Gonna hurt to give this one back....
