Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Friday, February 19, 2010

km 14992.8

Service report 10.02.19 1000 - 1045

Overhaul Back hub and replace bent axle with part from spares.

Replace back tyre (Panaracer 'Holy Moly' - worn through tread) with used one from spares (Tioga Psycho K with UV bitten sidewalls).

Replace lost screws from plastic chainwheel cover.

Adjust brakes - they are highly corroded and have become extra finicky to keep from centering around wheel.

Oil chain with SAE 20 wt.

Music of choice this session: '99 hip hop and Sonic Youth (prop to Jstar!)

Check out attached photos of worn parts.

notes from Jan 30 2010 1700 - 1800

km 14740.8

Replaced back brake shoes. Wear accelerates in the wet snow conditions and had diminished braking power.

Corrected odometer malfunction by tightening wire.

Drivetrain was worn to greater than 1% of original length, so:

*Replaced back shift line: stainless inner, suntour casing
*Freewheel: Shimano MF-TZ06
*Chain: KMC X8.93
*Back mech: Shimano RS (note here:

Indexing on shifting working perfectly.
