Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Monday, September 25, 2006

km 2140.3

Some mathematics:

Average speed is 19.8 kph, therefore actual time the wheels have been rolling is about 108.09 hours.

The cost of this project has been about $200, therefore cost per kilometer is about 9.34 cents per kilometer.

Contrast that to a $10000 car with 200000 kilometers/ 5000 hours riding time on it at about 5 cents per kilometer, probably averaged out to be the same when factoring in fuel, parking and maintenance.

The bottom bracket is making some strange crunching noises, indicating an overhaul will be necessary immenently.
