Maple Leaf Test Rides

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

Friday, September 10, 2010

km 17090.1

Recently replaced drivetrain with X8.93 chain and Sunrace 6 speed freewheel.

Also overhauled lower hanger to debug a noise problem. Turns out the UN52 unit that is in there was beginning to corrode, so covered it in anti-seize compound. That's prudent maintenance to inspect bearings every 10000km.

The noise was coming from the VP565 pedals after water loaded up in the bearings after riding in the rain. Dropped some SAE20wt oil into the bearings and they are running quietly enough now.

Rig running right and reliably.
