Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

km 3299.7

Flat tyre at last! This was caused by a 1 cm squared piece of clear glass, that produced a pst pst pst noise(in time with rotation of wheel).

Was repaired that day in less than 15 minutes using $2.25 worth of new parts, and patched the original tube and kept as spare.

The new drivetrain and BB are performing exactly as expected, has made the machine quiet and more efficient. Restored probably 2000km of useful riding and diminished possibility of snapped chain. Details of parts cost and model numbers at later date.
