Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

km 16124.8

Replaced instrumenation on handlebar with Filzer dz2L (MEC#5016155 $15) and glued it on.

Rig is running reliably. All systems are running quietly and efficiently.

Here is a photo of a recent restoration: 1941 CCM ladies' coaster. In the process, replaced rims, spokes, chain, saddle, tyres with Ukai Westwoods, Wheelsmith stainless 14g, Sram PC-1, Brooks Flyer S and Nokian Ultratour 700x40 respectively. Managed to add on a period correct Reich 'Mickey Mouse' bell and Gibson pedals. Riding this one is like sailing on a sheet of smooth glass.
