test riding Raleigh Summit

Also from Canadian Tire

This has hopped up rear wheel and clever fender installation.

BB and headset already loose, probably from a lack of frame prep. Front wheel axle adjusted too tight and dropouts on front fork misaligned.

Other than those minor flaws, runs perfectly well. Sounds like a projector running when riding on quiet roads.
