SC1800 24233km

SC1800 is running well through severe duty. Regularly exposed to salty water, temperature around zero Fahrenheit and damaged roads, the machine is still riding well. The only maintenance since the last post was to lubricate the Shimano BRM432 brakes because a bushing was corroding, making the brake pad constantly drag on the wheel.

Lubricant of choice at the moment is Boeshield T9.

The light of choice right now is a Cygolight Metro 420. Works awesome so far. On the back is the Planet Bike Superflash, they been working quite well for awhile now.
