Re: I bought a virtually new bike
I'm all on my own too, as far as local support. I'm used to it though having rebuilt a '55 Jeep from the frame up with basically nothing but internet help. This forum really is a great place for help and support though. I try to stay with bicycle parts as much as possible/safe. This is just so I can easily get replacement parts in town if I have to. I live out side of town as well. It's a small town of about 3,000 people, but I can still buy things like chain, pedals, cables, Loctite, oil and hardware there if needed. Someone can correct me on this, but if I remember correctly I think that 410, 415, BMX or #41 roller chain will work for the motor chain. You can run the old stuff for as long it holds up. It just stretches really fast. It only lasted a few trips for me.
