Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Saturday, October 06, 2007

km 4701

Still limping along between service intervals. The clothespin remains stuck in the parallelogram of the front mech leaving it in the midrange. The shifter on the left side of the bar remains broken from the cold snap in winter. Air pressure running a wee bit low from the once a month inflation check. Drivetrain is beginning to show wear and tear from the 2000km on it. The Planet Bike 'Beamer5' headlamp vibrated loose recently and has gone missing despite the liberal amounts of krazy glue applied to it.

Once again it astounds to the testament of the resiliancy of the machine as it remains quite useful by making long walks into short rides.

Officially on vacation at the moment so the milage will remain frozen as the beast is parked in the yard for the next month or so.
