New Motorized Bicycle rider in New Hampshire
Yesterday, I bought my first motorized bicycle. It is a Cannondale CAD1 M200SE with a Flying Horse motor.
It could certainly use a tune-up and I'm running into problems with the pulley system already. Because of a combination of doing a bad install job and using inappropriate bolts, the tensioner edges close to the spokes when I start riding and eventually catches on them!
I've been seeing a couple of posts here and there pop-up about not using a tensioner at all and I wonder if that's the route I should take or perhaps I should purchase a new tensioner setup?
The small holes in the brace were actually drilled into the bike.
Blow-out of the pulley and bolt assembly.
