Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

km 2250.4

The rig is running mostly OK, except for the crunching sound coming from the bottom bracket bearings and a 'tick' noise at every rotation of the cranks.

On the bright side, the tyre air pressure is where it should be; around 45 PSI; and holding air well.

The plastic pedals are holding up surprisingly well and the headset is staying in adjustment, indicating that the head tube has been properly faced.

The bottom bracket area would do well with a cartridge bearing upgrade to eliminate the facing issue in that area of the frame.
