Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Wednesday, August 30, 2006

km 2009.4

The test track is limited to a 6km round trip over urban surface asphalt streets.

Still deliberately neglecting to inflate tyres and lubricate chain. The resiliancy of this machine is astounding. Regardless of the neglect, the bicycle performs it's function.

The ride feels as if there is a broken spoke in the rear wheel; this observation will likely be confirmed at the next service interval.

On the schedule for next (60 minute) service interval September 3rd:

* Replace front and rear brake shoes ($4.50)
* Inflate tyres
* Lubricate drivtrain
* Inspect rear wheel

This course of action should greatly enhance performance and safety.
