Well I built up my clamping dropouts & tested it out.
All good in the hood. Lets roll.
Went for a ride to me maws,10km away, to visit with a new nephew & brother/sister in-law.
Round the last corner, phuuuuuuhsssssssssst. First flat of the season.
No one home & I'm on rim. They were out visiting family & my maw was out on a walk. WTF.
She showed 15 mins later & van'd my sad ass home.
10km ride impression, Smooth, Kool, Attn getting 40kph moped.
Going from the full rigid Ghetto bike to this F/S is sweeeeet.
I rode around the lake path & was stopped once, given 3 nice bike guy, & lots of attn.
I am handsome as a young Shatner though
Too fast too ride the bike path that shares asphalt with the walking path.
Grazers are the norm so a bit on the dangerous side, even when you slow to 15kph.
On road or trail, it is very smooth, rear shock feels perfect,
front end bobs like a common crack whore, but is soft like a Caddy.
Going to try my spare front end, as I remember it being much stiffer.
I figured out the speed issue I was having. Had the ebrake plugged into 3spd switch plug that was the same.
Ran the motor @ like 75%. All better now. Cant wait to get out there again.
First I gotta fix a flat & wait for the T-storms to pass. Supposed to be pretty shitty here for the next few days.
Sun then storm then sun then storm today & currently rumbling out there.
Second create a bit of a build log for clamping drops.
Here's a teaser.
more to come.
